A very random, but very useful tip I read today. If you want to know whether an egg has gone off (or not), drop it in a cup of water, if it floats it is off. This is because as an egg goes off, gas is produced thus making it more buoyant.

A tip to save money in the credit crunch!

    You’re right there.

    However, if you know the eggs aren’t too old e.g. only a few days over and they float then apparently off eggs are really good to make cakes. (Don’t blame me though if you get sick)

    P.S – what’s up with coconuts? Is it because it’s really a seed or because it has more saturated fat than lard?
