    Top tip for making Phil Vickery’s potato, apple and tuna frittata

    Salma Ali, 63 from London says: 'A great way to tell if an egg is fresh is by putting it in a glass of cold water. If it sits horizontally at the bottom of the glass, it's fresh, but if it hangs vertically or floats to the top, it's stale.'
