A very fresh egg, placed in water, will lie on the bottom. A week-old egg will lie on the bottom but bob slightly. An egg that is around three weeks old will balance on its small end, with the large end up. And a bad egg will float.
Here's a great way to chill beverages in time for an impromptu backyard barbecue. Place wine or other bottles in a bucket; add a layer of ice, followed by a layer of salt (coarse or table); repeat until you almost reach the top. Fill the bucket with cold water to just below the ice line. The water in the ice bucket will be colder than normal, chilling the libations in less than 10 minutes. We'll drink to that!
How to tell if an Egg is Fresh ~ If the egg lies on its side on the bottom it is very fresh, If the egg stands up and bobs on the bottom it isn’t quite as fresh, If the egg floats on the surface, discard!
