How long do eggs last?
We've never had an egg go bad at my house.

A bit of a digression--maybe not-----is it just me or am I just jinxed but I've been cooking and baking for over 30 years and it seems like that in the past few years I'm getting more and more eggs with "blood spots". Now, I've been told not to use those eggs and I don't but what makes me mad is that I'll crack 3-4 eggs in a bowl and then the last one is bloody and I have to throw everything out. So now I find myself breaking each egg in a separate container before adding it to the rest. Anyone else having this problem? As for determining fresh eggs----where I live I always "float" my eggs. Not much quality control I'm afraid.

It's definitely A-ok to use double yolkers. When I used to raise chickens, as the birds got older we got double yolkers more & more often & considered them "Bonus Eggs" - lol!

If the eggs you bought were from a supermarket, I'm surprised that a double-yolker snuck past the egg company, as they usually weed them out when the eggs are candled (run past a bright light so the egg can be checked for abnormalities). But there's absolutely nothing wrong with them - they just don't "conform to the norm", as they say - lol!!

Well, many things come from finding a double yolker!! I had no idea! I was pretty suprised when I saw it myself. Being unsure, I threw it away and used another but now I will make a wish and take it as a sign of good luck. I need some...my family always says "Nik, if you didn't have bad luck, you'd have no luck at all". Anything is worth a shot!!

Actually, breaking a double-yolker open is a sure sign you'll be coming into some money soon, perhaps winning a prize on the lottery. Certainly, make a wish when you break a double-yolker. It's sure to come true.
Gee Daisy, what is wrong with me? I crack open double yolkers all the time and I never got any luck in the lottery or the casino. Could it be that my luck vanishes because I can tell a double yolker before I crack it open?

My goodness, you could have thrown just one of the two yolks and bring the egg back to normal or even keep the extra yolk for a while just in case you run into a yolkless egg!

Gosh, I don't know. But there could be. Cholesterol prevention research could hatch one anytime. The good cook should be prepared.
