Are these eggs fresh?

Ever question if those eggs you've had kicking around for a bit are still good to use? Wouldn't it be great if you could figure out of the egg was good to go or toss without cracking it and risking filling your home with a lovely rotten egg sulfur smell. Well now you can!

Fill a glass or bowl with water. Gently place egg in water, if it floats the egg has gone off, if it lays on the bottom of the container on its side or bottom then it is still good to use! Floaters should be thrown out.

I tested this on some eggs today, works well and is easy. Plus it was helpful as the best before date on my current pack of eggs wasn't very clear, and I wasn't sure if they were good or how close they were to being less than ideal.

Also I miss Nova Scotia, they had the date printed on each egg there, so there wasn't ever a mystery.
