Has some things us egg eaters need to know:
Quote:
Leave eggs in their original carton in a colder section of the refrigerator, not in the door. Do not wash eggs prior to storage because that will remove the protective coating applied at the packaging plant.

Also, if you are going to eat them raw, immerse the whole egg in almost boiling water for 30 seconds. It won't cook it, but will kill most bacteria on the shell.

I was not aware that eggs were coated. I found this information about why they are coated.

How long do eggs last?
Keep eggs refrigerated to promote quality and safety. Raw eggs can be kept in the refrigerator for 4-5 weeks after purchase. Refrigerated hard-boiled eggs should be eaten within 7 days.

Why do hard-boiled eggs spoil faster than raw eggs?

A hen puts a protective coating (called the bloom) on the egg as she lays it. The bloom keeps contaminants from entering pores in the shell (eggshells have up to 17,000 pores). Processing plants wash the eggs and coat them with mineral oil to replace the bloom. This protective coating is removed when you wash or boil the egg.

Interesting.

I chill and peel HB eggs right away and put them in a little vinegar, I thinik they keep better also they peel easier.
