Food & Cooking Tips

Using and Storing Eggs

* Choose refrigerated Grade AA or A eggs and make sure no eggs are cracked or dirty. * Keep eggs refrigerated at 40° F or slightly below. * Do not wash eggs before storing. Eggs are washed during commercial processing and a protective mineral oil coating is put on. * Store eggs in the original carton on the refrigerator shelf, not in the door where it's warmer. * Avoid eating foods containing raw eggs, such as homemade Caesar salad dressing, Hollandaise sauce, cookie dough and eggnog. Commercial products are made with pasteurized eggs. Source: FMI
