The biggest
eggs come from the oldest hens. When in doubt, stick to large -- most recipes call for them.

Spin
an egg to see if it's cooked. It it spins smoothly, it's hard-boiled; if it wobbles, it's raw.

When they're hard-boiled,
older eggs (1 to 2 weeks from purchase date) are easier to peel than fresher ones.

An egg
has 17,000 tiny pores -- which can let in unwanted odors -- so keep eggs refrigerated in their carton.
