How To Test Expired Eggs

I am forever buying eggs and then forgetting about them before they expire. I usually toss any food item that is expired, even if I think it's still ok. I had food poisoning twice and never want it again. It is such a violent sickness that I would never wish upon anyone! Thankfully eggs are easy to test! Make sure to do this trick before you toss your eggs and buy new ones!

Step 1: Find a deep bowl and fill it with water. Deep enough to submerge the egg

Step 2: Gently put the egg in the water

Step 3: The egg with either sink or float. If the egg sinks, it is still fresh and safe to eat. If it floats, it has gone bad and not safe to eat. Toss it!
