I was explaining to my friend, Sharon, about the old 'if the egg floats' rule, but now I can't remember for sure which is which. If the egg floats it is bad --- or if the egg sinks????? I really do think that the floaters are bad --- sulfur dioxide gas?

But.....?

I've got one of each in the fridge right now, but I am not eating them both to see which one makes me sick.

:rolleyes:

I don't know the addage but when I put eggs in a pot of water to hard boil them, they go right to the bottom.

cchiu - did you go to this link? http://www.kidsarus.org/eat/besafe.asp

Love the explanation. Gonna have to try the bread experiment. Thanks so much. I get such quick answers on cheftalk! Perhaps I should try searching for myself...but you guys know so much. Thanks also Kyle, that's what I thought, but when I had one of each I just couldn't decide.
