Ancient farmer’s wisdom

Recognise fresh eggs

With a simple trick you can understand if the eggs that you have bought are fresh or not. You cannot tell from the outside how fresh an egg is.
The eggs change only on the inside the older they get.

The egg white retracts and small air bubbles are being formed under the shell.

If a fresh egg and an older one are put in a glass of water the fresh egg will sink, the older one will float because of the air that was enclosed within.
