Best Ways To Store And Use Eggs

Best Storage

The fridge is the best place to store eggs.

Always store your eggs in the fridge.

Ensure your fridge is set between 0 and 4°C.

Can I Freeze It?


Simply crack each egg into a muffin tin, stir to blend the yolk and the white, and freeze. You can separate the yolks from the whites first if you want to use them for different dishes.

To ensure egg yolks don’t turn into gel when freezing beat 4 yolks with 1 ½ tsp. sugar (for a future sweet recipe) Or with 1/8 tsp. salt (for savory recipes). Place the eggs in an airtight container in the freezer.

For egg whites simply place each egg into an ice cube tray. Place the tray in the freezer for a few hours, then transfer the frozen cubes to an airtight container.

Make sure you label the containers so you can easily identify them later.

Fresher For Longer

Eggs are best kept in their original carton in the fridge.

Use It Up

As long as you will be cooking them thoroughly, eggs can be eaten a day or two after their best before date. Use them for a nutritious, cheap meal in an omelette.

Did You Know?

To test if an egg is fresh, place it into a glass of water. If it sinks, it is fresh. If it stays submerged, but doesn’t touch the bottom, it’s older, but still ok to eat. If it floats, throw it away because it is no longer good to eat.
