#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfriday
