Too cold to go outside and grill this winter? Cook with eggs! Here are some tips for Buying, Storing and Cooking with eggs.
•Choose a carton that is cold. Check the date and always check to make sure eggs are not cracked.
•Store eggs in the coldest part of the refrigerator.
•Fresh eggs in shell will last 3 to 5 weeks in the refrigerator.
•Hard-boiled eggs can last a week in the refrigerator, in or out of the shell.
•To be safe, make sure the yolks and whites are firm, not runny.
•Cook egg dishes like quiche or casseroles to 160°F to kill potentially harmful bacteria.
•When a recipe calls for raw eggs, such as Caesar salad dressing, use a liquid pasteurized egg or egg substitute instead (NEVER EAT RAW EGGS)
