Do you place fresh eggs in the special compartment in your refrigerator that holds them nice and snug? It might be time to break that habit. Eggshells are porous, which means they slowly dry out and lose their freshness. Leaving eggs in their container helps them stay fresher longer, since they aren’t exposed to chilled open air. Bonus tip: You can coat eggs with a little vegetable oil to make them less porous. This will add days of freshness to your eggs.
