    Never really thought about it as our chickens have never written anything on their eggs πŸ™‚

    Seriously, we just eat them without thinking how old they are, can’t recall a bad one

    thanks, just googled the float test, tried it and while doing it my 6 year old’s just told me if eggs are fresh they’ll sink. πŸ™„

    All ok.

    Teach yer dad to float eggs…

    Another method is to hold an egg and alternate quickly putting each end on your lips…….if eggs are ok one end is warmer than the other (apparently!)

    Crack ’em open. If you go ‘jesus, what’s that bloody smell?!’ then they’re not safe to eat.

    HTH.

    This is good advice and can be applied to a wide range of foodstuffs. Twenty years of the internet and we no longer trust our senses πŸ˜‰

    I’ll stick with the ‘float’ test, rather than smell a rotten egg by choice!

    Kids want omelettes for lunch- eggs are dated best before 01 August- should I feed them?

    For eggs, “best before date” = “ready to make omelettes date”

    Is eating an “off” egg dangerous though?

    Salmonella (or whatever Edwina found) is there or it’s not Shirley?

    Salmonella is more present in the shell I believe.

    My mum kept eggs in the cupboard (not the bleedin fridge) and specifically wouldn’t bake with them until they were beyond their BB date πŸ™‚

    I never keep egg in the fridge, they should be at room temperature for use (as with all ingredients)

    that explains everything DD

    I’ve got some free range egs form ASDA at the moment which taste ‘off’ despite only being 2 days from the shop. eugggggghhhhhhh!

    Explains a lot about life in general philly, but I suspect you were picking on me like Jimmers and Furri. What have I, what have I what have I done to deserve this? πŸ™

    not picking on you, its called ‘flirting’ on STW dont you know?

    Plant them in the garden, in a week or so you will have some chickens, the chickens will lay you new eggs. I’m sure that’s how it works.

    😯

    GENIUS! guessing that’s what an ‘egg-plant’ is then, seeing as i’ve never seen one in the shops! my god man you’re my new hero πŸ˜€

    Eat them. If you’re all cramped up with horrible stomach pains, high fever and gravy for poo tomorrow, then they were off.

    Here is an eggplant.

    Yup. I found this awesome shop that no one had got to yet. Sign on the front said Binner’s House. Got loads of cool shit, eggs and whatnot….left all the kinky stuff tho. Guy seems a bit of a sicko.

    Finally…

    Law of averages and all that πŸ˜€
