12 Less-Known Signs Your Food Has Gone BAD
#1. Eggs floating in water
You might’ve heard about this hack before, as I know several grandparents who know how to do it.
How it works: Place an egg inside a glass of water. If it drops to the bottom of the glass, it’s fresh and you can eat it safely; if it starts floating, it’s gone bad.
That’s the basic rule. However, the US Department of Agriculture points out that even this rule is debatable. For example, if your egg is barely floating, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s gone bad.
In such cases, your best bet is to cook the egg and then smell its yolk. A rotten yolk will smell horribly regardless of how you cook it!
