When you open your fridge, does your carton of eggs face you horizontally, vertically, or diagonally?
Do you have a pattern of which eggs you pull out first? Such as taking the ones closest to the door first, or evenly spaced across the carton to maintain balance, or take the side or back ones out first?December 9, 2016 10:53 am at 10:53 am #1207653
When you open our refrigerator the eggs are on the extreme left of the third shelf, stacked 3 trays high.
HOWEVER, they could be viewed as facing you either vertically or horizontally, as we purchase them in 30 packs from Shop-Rite which are square plastic containers. (back when we bought them in cardboard dozen boxes they went in the long way…vertical).
We remove the container form the refrigerator before using the eggs. If using to cook and eat we take from the rear of the container. If for baking we take from the front as they are not as cold and will come to room temperature faster.December 9, 2016 2:39 pm at 2:39 pm #1207654MenoParticipant

Wow. You really have this figured out.December 9, 2016 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #1207655
Back in the late 1970s I owned a kosher bakery. When baking you use eggs that are at room temperature for best results. Also when following baking recipes in the US, they are calibrated for Large size eggs, not Extra Large or JumboDecember 11, 2016 1:24 am at 1:24 am #1207656
CTLAWYER: Thank you!!! I am so glad that I started this thread. I prayed that it would be taken seriously.

Flip…Chhhh. Flip…Chhhh. “What are you doing?” “I’m cooking eggs; want some?”
I guess no one gets it.December 11, 2016 3:03 am at 3:03 am #1207658
No fair I didn’t get a chance to figure it out.
That said, what are you talking about please?
Did you just toss and turn an omelette in thin air? If so, that’s talent 🙂December 11, 2016 3:49 am at 3:49 am #1207659

IT was this skit that the kids used to do. There were four characters: the cook, the other guy, the doctor, and the director. The cook would act out flipping something in a frying pan. The second guy would walk in and ask “What are you doing?” The cook said “I’m cooking eggs. Want some?” The second guy would pretend to eat and say “These eggs are terrible!” before falling down. The cook would shout “Doctor, doctor, come quick! This man is sick!” The doctor would enter and announce “This man is dead!” (But of course no one was dead. It was a skit. I didn’t need to clarify that; you knew.) The director would come over and shout “Cut! That was terrible! Do it again faster! Or slower, or like ballet, or some other silly variation. Over and over again while that audience cracked up at the absurdity.
This was before we had You Tube to entertain ourselves. It makes me a little sad to think that the “Eggs” skit is no longer being performed anyplace. I hope that somewhere, somebody still knows what I’m talking about.December 11, 2016 2:02 pm at 2:02 pm #1207664takahmamashParticipant
Ha! My kids learned that in camp, back in their little days . . . but they learned it as “baking chocolate cake.” I think their favorite change was “do it a little more Yiddish,” and they’d do it with a “Yiddish” accent.
For the OP, our eggs are on the top shelf, right side, and vertical. I remove them out to balance the weight of the carton.December 11, 2016 2:20 pm at 2:20 pm #1207665
Lol this is so interesting! Thank you
Recently mine are on the left middle shelf, verticle, and I take them out to keep the carton balanced. I usually keep the carton in the fridge when I pull them out. Sometimes then the row closest to the sealed horizontal fold is egg-heavy towards the endDecember 11, 2016 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #1207666
How do the eggs at the shook stay good when they’re still in a huge stack in the hot sun?December 11, 2016 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #1207667
Once refrigerated eggs have to be kept refrigerated. Here in small town Connecticut locals sell eggs from stands by their small farms. They are not refrigerated and will keep about a week stored in the pantry. In fact our vet sells local eggs from a neighbor’s flock and they are just stacked on a counter in her reception area.December 11, 2016 5:37 pm at 5:37 pm #1207668Torah613TorahParticipant
Large eggs are supposed to be 2 oz. I have been weighing my eggs and they are consistently 1.7-1.9..

T613T if you are in the USA, you are being cheated. You should report this to your state Department of consumer protection.
The USDA allows a variance of 3.3% into the next lower weight class, but that requires a weight of 1.92 ounces.
(a) The weight classes for U.S. Consumer Grades for Shell Eggs shall be as indicated
in Table I of this section and shall apply to all consumer grades.

Torah613Torah: How do you weigh them? With a food scale?December 12, 2016 8:27 am at 8:27 am #1207673
I keep a tray of 30 on a middle shelf that pulls out. Pull it out, take eggs from the front, push back in. When first rows are finished, rotate tray so that those in back are now in front. When almost finished, buy new tray and put on shelf, cut first carton down to hold the last 2-3 eggs from the first tray, and place those next to large new tray.December 12, 2016 8:28 am at 8:28 am #1207674
T613T before you hire CTL to start the class-action suit, maybe check if your scale is accurate- maybe it needs calibrating?December 12, 2016 12:16 pm at 12:16 pm #1207675JM613Participant
About eggs being kept out of the refrigerator:
In Israel, the trays of eggs are generally not refrigerated. At home I refrigerate them if I have room. Pesach I do refrigerate them.
In the US the eggs we would buy in the store have been rinsed. Rinsing removes a natural coating on the eggs. Eggs without the natural coating need to be refrigerated.
This is usually the answer given to Americans who come to Israel and complain about how the eggs are dirty and it is unsanitary and we should push to require that they be washed. Apparently, in this case, the dirty eggs are *more* sanitary 🙂December 12, 2016 1:13 pm at 1:13 pm #1207676☢️ Rand0m3x 🎲Participant

JM613- how do you have room for all those Pesach eggs in your fridge?
I would say that I always refrigerate my eggs except for Pesach when I just can’t fit them all in!
Note that there is one date on the eggs if kept at room temperature, and another date a month later if kept in fridge.December 12, 2016 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #1207678iacisrmmaParticipant

Does anyone put pastuerized egg whites in their smoothies?
There is a recipe on the box. It’s uncooked but I guess okay because it’s been pasteurized.
However I read that eating raw egg whites without egg yolks inhibits biotin absorption. Biotin is essential for healthy hair and skin.January 1, 2017 2:38 am at 2:38 am #1207680
If you only eat the yolks or only the whites, do you save the other for another time?
Like yolks to make custard sufganiyot filling? Or whites to make an egg-white omelette another day?
If not, is it halachically permissible to throw this “food” away?
Maybe birds will eat it if you cook it. Chickens and ducks will eat their own eggs if you throw them on the ground.January 1, 2017 8:04 am at 8:04 am #1207681JM613Participant
WinnieThePooh – small family. We only use about 5 trays of eggs. I bought these stackable plastic egg trays so I wash all my eggs and put them in these trays (they hold the eggs just like the carton ones but they are not ruined by the wet eggs and they let the eggs dry (they are also clean). I lower my egg shelf in the fridge and put the pile on it. I use a bunch of the eggs right away, boiling them, baking, etc. before Pesach, so probably one tray doesn’t have to go there.
If we were a larger family I don’t know what I would do with all the pre-washed eggs…..January 2, 2017 1:28 am at 1:28 am #1207682

in the small space under a pull out drawer. Orientation? whichever an eighteen egg box fits. I keep eggs in small quantity and eat one or two now and them to keep the vegetarian from being vegan. I have neighbors and folks that will stack 30 egg trays 4 high on top of the refrigerator. I have heard that fresh eggs will keep two weeks w/o refrigeration, but that is a lot of eggs to use in two weeksJanuary 6, 2017 5:49 am at 5:49 am #1207684
From atop the fridge:
To get an egg would take a ladder.
An earthquake would cause a splatter.
Boiling all their eggs would almost make a gross platter.*
