How to select and store
Choose eggs from free-range or organically raised chickens. Eggs should always be visually inspected before buying. It is best to check for cracks or liquid in the box to ensure there are no broken ones. Eggs ar.e best stored in the refrigerator where they may remain for up to one month. Both whites and yolks can be frozen for up to 3 months.Keep eggs away from strong-smelling foods as they can become tainted.A fresh egg will sink in water, a stale one will float
How to prepare and cook it
Just crack them open, tap the middle of the egg against the rim of a bowl to crack the shell; insert the tips of your thumbs into the crack; draw the two halves apart, allowing the egg to drop into the bowl; use one-half of the shell to fish out any fragments of shell that may have fallen into the bowl.
It’s a good idea to crack each egg into an empty bowl before adding it to your mixing bowl, just in case it is bad. Once open, a very fresh egg will have a plump yolk and the white itself will have two layers. Eggs are great on their own, either scrambled, poached, boiled or fried, or use to make dishes such as omelettes, frittatas, soufflés, pancakes, sauces or cakes, or use to glaze breads and pies. Eggs bind mixtures together as well as enriching the flavour. Beaten egg whites provide volume by trapping air.When baking, use eggs at room temperature.
