2 in one day....would you eat THIS?


Recommended Posts

My daughter made cookies this afternoon.   When she was all done, I went to make boiled eggs for a different recipe, and plopped the remaining eggs from the dozen she was using into water to boil and one floated...and a couple sat on their end.  


So, my question is....are my daughter's cookies fit to eat?  The eggs she used didn't smell rotten...so they probably weren't, right?

I may be wrong but I believe that's why it's easer to peel hard boiled eggs made with older eggs.


The other reason is that the membrane also thickens as eggs age, resulting in them being easier to separate from the shell. If I am trying to make hard-boiled eggs, I want them to age in the fridge for at least 2 weeks.
