Every once in a while I like to write about something other than oil and gas. I got these interesting facts about eggs from a friend.
- The color of eggshells is solely dependent upon the breed of the chicken providing the eggs. There is no difference in taste imparted by the color of the shell.
- The “sell by” date specified on the packaging or eggshell itself is not an expiration date. The eggs should be good for another 3 -5 weeks after the sell by date. If you are unsure if the egg is good to eat, place it in some water in a glass. If the egg remains at the bottom of the water, it is good to go. If the egg inverts to a vertical position, eat that sucker now because it is just about over the hill. If the egg rises to the top of the water and floats, chuck that thing.
