Little Known Facts About This Culinary Gem

- Did you know the best way to crack an egg is in a small bowl to prevent egg shells getting into your recipe ingredients? It’s much easier this way if you need to remove bits of shells. And cracking each in a separate bowl will prevent having to throw out all of the eggs you are using should one include the dreaded, somewhat developed embryo…hey, it happens.
- Did you know that it doesn’t matter the color of the egg shell? That only differentiates the breed…they all taste the same.
- Did you know the best way to store eggs is in the container you bought them in? Also, store them in the refrigerator but not on the door shelf. The constant opening and closing of the door causes them to degrade faster.
- Did you know, to determine the egg’s freshness….you can place it in a bowl of water. If it sinks and lies on its side…it’s fresh. If the wide end points upward, it’s not as fresh but is OK for baking. If the egg floats, it’s old and should be discarded.
