Tip for Checking Freshness of Eggs, #2

Shake egg gently near your ear.

A stale egg has a rattling or gurgling sound.

This in another test that should be done just prior to using the egg. As stated in Tip for Keeping Eggs Fresh, #1, shaking and other rough handling can cause the membrane between the yolk and the white to rupture which will cause the yolk to seep into the white and speed spoiling.
