Fridge or counter

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
We sell our chickens eggs to the locals, and was wondering would the lifespan be longer in the fridge or is it best to leave them on them on the side in the kitchen? Would the eggs taste differently from out the fridge if other food is in the fridge as well? Thanks in advance

Refrigerating them would probably be best, they'll stay fresher longer. I don't know how'd they'd taste if you left them out though.

😁 always kept mine on the counter. The store doesn't keep them in the fridges but if they last longer than I suppose fridges is best! Is it true about eggs tasting differently if you put other foods in the fridge as well?

Assuming you don't wash the bloom off:

 

Fridge is always best for longevity.  We typically leave them on the counter for about two weeks before fridging and there is zero difference in the taste from an egg that was cooled from day one.

Government recommendations differ, by country, so I'd say do what you suits you.

No we don't wash any of our eggs, their usually fairly clean anyway. Yes I've heard both sides to the story but never really known if there's a right and a wrong thanks for your help:)

There is no need to refrigerate eggs unless you have rinsed or washed them, but I always just refrigerate them because it extends their freshness.

The experts tell us that each day at room temperature is like one week in the refrigerator!  Makes it easy for me to refrigerate them.  Mary
