Raw Vs Hard Boiled Eggs

This Sparked Me!

If you are unsure which egg in the refrigerator is hard boiled and which is raw, spin each on the counter. Raw eggs will not spin, but hard boiled eggs will spin and spin.

    I remember when I learned this in my high school homemaking class.

    I put a pencil "X" mark on the HB eggs.

    When I do my hard boiled, I have 2 colored glad containers. I have one red for raw, and one green for hard boiled.

    I wish I had know this when I was younger... I accidentally cracked open a raw egg instead of a hard boiled egg.
