Eggs! Chickens Lay Them, People Eat Them, Farmers Find Them, and Stores Sell Them! Nothing real surprising about that right!?
Now, the real question here, “Would You eat an Egg that is 30 Days Old? What about 60 Days Old?
I bet You Answered … No! Right?
Truth is if You’re buying Eggs in the Stores, You’ve probably already been eating eggs that are 30-60 days old!
According to the Farmer’s Almanac, and information they obtained from Fresh Eggs Daily, “By law, an egg can be sold for up to 30 days after the date it was put in the carton. And farmers have up to 30 days to go from when the egg is laid to the carton.”
So, how do You know when an egg is fresh?
One way to tell the age of an egg is to rely on Sell By, Best Expiration Dates, and Use Before dates! After all they range from just 30 – 45 Days after Package Date!
Another way is to break it in your pan, does the yolk run all over? Or does it stay together? If it runs all over, I bet it’s an Egg purchased from a Store! Right?
Another way to see if an egg is fresh is to put it in a glass of water! If it floats throw it out! For more tips on how to tell if you’re eggs are fresh read the Article, “Can I Still Eat That”, by FreshMag.
Or, in my opinion, either get your own chickens, or seek out a local farmer! Then You’ll go from eating 30-60 day old eggs to eating fresh, nutritious, eggs with a wonderful taste experience! Plus Farm Eggs are usually Larger and there is nothing like Fresh Eggs!
