To test if an egg is fresh, fill a bowl with water, add 2 teaspoons of salt, then add the egg in question. If it sinks, it's a good egg. If it is a floater, toss it out, it's a bad egg, and no one likes a bad egg.
Which is better, white or brown eggs? My mom always said they were the same nutritionally, the only difference is in the color of the shell. I believed her, but I thought if I am going to put it on the blog I better check her facts. Once again "Mom is always right"! The color of the egg is determined by the color of the feathers on the chicken. White feathers, white egg shell. Brown or red feathers, brown egg shell. That's it! There is no difference in taste or quality.
