Avoid storing them in the door because repeated opening and closing of the door causes temperature fluctuations. 3. Store eggs in their original carton. This helps keep the eggs from picking up odors and flavors from other foods. 4. When preparing hard- cooked eggs for an egg hunt, be on the lookout for cracks in the shells. Even tiny cracks can allow bac- teria to contaminate the egg. Eggs that have cracks should be discarded. 5. Follow the three easy steps below for perfectly hard-boiled eggs. 6.
