how to choose and store eggs correctly and what to cook besides scrambled eggs –


Eggs are sold in categories – C1, 2, C0. This division has nothing to do with the quality of the product, so the assumption that C2 is worse than C0 is wrong. The category indicates the weight. C2 – small eggs, weight up to 45 grams. The first category – eggs weighing up to 55 grams, and selective, C0 – 55-60 grams.

We define quality

The most famous way to check is to lower it into cold and heavily salted water. If the egg sinks, it is fresh. Another sign is if boiled eggs don’t peel well. True, all this can be done only after the purchase. And how to choose a quality product in a store / market? The shell should be matte, the weight of the egg should not be too light. When shaking, it should not make sounds. Bring to your ear, shake and listen. Quiet, nothing gurgles? So, everything is in order (Although, what is there, inspecting a dozen eggs in this way is a troublesome business).

We store correctly

In the cool in conditions of high humidity – this is all understandable. And here’s another nuance: it is recommended to keep the eggs in the refrigerator with the sharp end down. Why? Experts say this position allows the egg to “breathe” and stay fresh longer.

And you need to wash the eggs, but only immediately before cooking.
