An easy way to test for freshness is to put an egg in a bowl of water. If it sinks and lies on its side, it is fresh. If it floats with its rounded end on the sufrace of the water, it is stale. If an egg floats in the middle of the water with its rounded end up, it is not stale but it is probably two or three weeks old. Fresh eggs have thick whites that hold the yolks firmly in place.
