Here’s where we’re at in week 4…
This is the mineral oil egg (doesn’t float and didn’t smell funny):
This is the control egg:
Notice anything different? Yes, it’s floating. So, I cracked it open on a plate:
I know the plate is red so it’s not really easy to see but everything looks perfectly fine. There was no smell either. If I hadn’t done the float test I would have had no inclination that the egg was bad. Needless to say, I didn’t bother to eat even though I was working up the nerve to do so.
Here’s the mineral oil egg being cooked up (it tasted fine):
I’m not sure whether to keep the control eggs or not since I now have zero intention of eating them. If anyone has a good reason why I should keep checking them I will do so otherwise they’re going in the trash before next week. I will, however, keep checking the mineral oil eggs to see how long they’ll last.
