HOW TO COOK EGGS?
What eggs should we buy? What are the best eggs?
When we want to acquire eggs, we must visually note them neither to be damaged nor to have holes. They must be properly packaged, because the atmosphere inside the closed egg, which is the correct storage, ensures them not to be spoilt when they are open and in contact with oxygen.
We’ll know that an egg is fresh in terms of the strength of the egg white. A firmer the egg white appears, the fresher it is.
How to know if an egg is fresh?
If there are doubts about its freshness, before proceeding to break the shell, we can put the raw egg in a bowl of water. If it floats, we will have to throw it, because floating means that the air inside is very abundant and the egg is no longer cool.
The chamber size of the egg, that is the space occupied by air, is greater as an egg loses freshness.
