Get Your Egg On

When shopping for eggs, most people refer to the "Sell By" date to determine the freshness of a carton. A more precise number to refer to is the "Julian Date." This is the three-digit number that gives the day of the year in which the carton was packed (January 1st being 001.) If stored well and cooked properly, eggs can be safely eaten up to five weeks after their packing date. Knowing the Julian Date can help you safely keep eggs longer.

This week, I will consider the Julian Date system when shopping for eggs.
