QUESTION:  How can I tell if my eggs are fresh? Are they ok to use if the shells have small cracks?

 

ANSWER:

Place an unbroken raw egg in a tall glass of water. If it's fresh it will sink, if not, it will float.

Refrigerating eggs in their cardboard cartons will help keep them fresh.

You should check and discard any eggs that have cracks in their shells, as they can contain bacteria that may be harmful.
