    Default Eggs

    I have a dozen eggs in the fridge that I never got to use and it says "Best By
    November 14". How long past this "best by" date are they safe to use? Thanks.

    Crack em open, and let them sit in a hot humid environment for 3
    weeks. They should be ready to use by then. Serve them to them what
    you don't much care for. But be prepared to hightail it to Guiana.
    Buy a mango farm there with option to produce bananas. Take vacations
    in Turkey, Hungary, Siberia, and other nations where no sane man would
    tread. Once your banana farm is profitable, start growing coffee.
    When that runs out, remove yourself to Paris, and get down with the
    remnants of Roman Polanski. Make movies with Max Baer Jr., and Ellie
    Mae. Like just scramble your eggs. Is that so hard?

    Even if they don't perform too well in frying, poaching or soft boiling,
    they should be good enough for at least a month more for uses where the
    yolk and white are mixed.

    Probably at least 2 more weeks .... test them by floating (or not) in
    a glass of water.

    If they're refrigerated from the get-go, they can be used for at least
    6 weeks. I speak from 'sperience.

    Hell yes! When I'm away in the summer, our local Save Easy, stamps
    (in pink) each individual egg with the 'best before' date.

    So cute. Not that I pay much attention. e.

    If there's any question, I suggest breaking them one by one into a small
    bowl before adding to whatever mixture you are cooking. Better safe
    than sorry.

    I say that because years ago I was at my MIL's house trying to make soft
    boiled eggs for my husband's breakfast and every one that I slid into
    the water split open as the water came to a boil and was rotten. It
    turns out she hadn't used or bought eggs any for months. :-P

    A couple of years ago my kids and I cleaned out their grandmother's
    fridge. There was salad dressing there that had expired 12 years
    earlier.

    I was being conservative by saying 3 weeks, the max recommended from
    the egg producers seems to be 5 weeks so you're correct.

    At church, any time I put something in one of the refrigerators, I check
    the dates on salad dressings, ketchup, etc. If it has expired, I toss it.

    Crack them into a cup before putting them into a recipe or frying. If
    they don't smell, they're fine. If you put one into a glass of water
    and it floats, it just means it's dried out some and the air pocket at
    the rounder end of the egg has become larger, thus allowing the float.
    It doesn't necessarily mean the egg is spoiled.

    I'd use them.

    I've used them even older than that and suffered no ill effects.

    I would try the water test: Put an egg in a glass full of water, and if
    the egg floats, it's bad. (Gases build up inside eggs that are going
    bad, and if they float, the gases have made the egg bouyant.)
