What to look for when buying eggs and how to store them
When buying eggs, choose the freshest ones, check that none are damaged or cracked. Store the eggs in a fridge (in their box so that they don't absorb flavours or odours of strong foods through the shells). They will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks - check the date stamp before using. If you place them pointed end down, the yolk will remain centred in the white.
