Questions Answers
Q: How and for how long should eggs be stored?
A: Eggs should be kept in the fridge. They should be stored with the sharp point downwards -
preferably in the egg rack in the fridge door and not near strong smelling food like fish or garlic. Eggs can be kept in the fridge for up to 1 month and for about 10 days at room temperature.
Q: Can eggs be frozen?
A: Eggs can be frozen but not in their shells. Egg white can be frozen without any additions. Whole eggs (mixed thoroughly) freeze excellently with the following additions: For every 12 eggs add 5ml salt or 20ml sugar or 20ml honey or 10ml glycerine. Frozen eggs must be left to thaw before used.
Q: What size egg is referred to in recipes? A: When egg sizes are not specified in recipes it is internationally accepted that large are indicated.

Q: How long can raw egg mixture be stored?
A: Raw egg mixture can be kept in the fridge for a day.

Fun egg facts
Which came first the chicken or the egg? The egg of course. The first egg, with a hard outer
covering that could survive on land, was laid about 800 million years ago. (About 100 million years
before the Dinosaurs.)

A hen takes 25 to 26 hours to produce an egg. She can produce up to 300 eggs in her lifetime.
The record for laying the most eggs: seven in one day. Can't remember if you boiled that egg or not? Spin it! If it wobbles, it's raw. If it spins easily, it's hard boiled.

Some breeds of chickens can lay eggs coloured in shades of green or blue, depending on breed and ancestry.
