    How does one know when eggs are past their prime?

    If you got them in the grocery store look at the best before date ,you have about 1-2 weeks after that.


    There is also this old adage but I wouldn't bet my life on it.
    " Put an egg in a glass of water. If it sinks, it's still good .If it floats then it's rotten.

    you guys.... it's easy Cut/paste from a site (can't take credit) but it does work, trust me. Here you go:

    Fill a fairly deep bowl with water and carefully lower the egg into the water.

    A very fresh egg will immediately sink to the bottom and lie flat on its side. This is because the air cell within the egg is very small. The egg should also feel quite heavy.

    As the egg starts to lose its freshness and more air enters the egg, it will begin to float and stand upright. The smaller end will lie on the bottom of the bowl, whilst the broader end will point towards the surface. The egg will still be good enough to consume, however, if the egg fully floats in the water and does not touch the bottom of the bowl at all, it should be discarded, as it will most likely be bad.

    The emboldened passage begs a question or two but nevermind.

    So buy a dozen and sink 'em in the 'fridge.

    So much work. I prefer easter eggs, you can eat them even though they're old.
