Separating Egg Whites from the Yolk

Vote for this contest contender!

My recipe for Angel Food Cake calls for 12 egg whites which takes a dozen or more eggs for me, depending on how many yolks I break. After breaking a yolk on the sharp edge of an egg shell, I found it easier to pour the yolk in my hand and let the remainder of the white slip through my fingers.

The last cake I made took only a dozen eggs. I make a lot of Angel Food cakes and I'll be using this method from now on.

I think egg separators are more sanitary and less messy.

Thank you for telling me this.

I agree, however, it was the only thing I had at the moment. It was not hard to clean up the mess and the eggs were washed before I cracked them. The second time I did it, I put the egg shells in a container of water. I wash out the sticky stuff, set them aside to dry and then I crush them and add to my collection of egg shells I have saved over the year. I put them in the hole when setting tomato and pepper plants. It helps to eliminate blossom rot.

I'll have to invest in an egg separator. I definitely need one. I've never run across one. Where can I find one?

When I submitted this posting, I thought people are going to think this is gross and I shouldn't admit that I do it but then I thought about that $5.00 I would receive if Thriftyfun posted it. I received the $5.00 and I really do appreciate it. Thank you. I have a good use for it.

We make bags holders for picking up roadside litter. They cost us $5.00 each. We do not make them to sell. In the past 2 weeks, I have donated 4 holders to 4 different people that asked me for one to pick up litter in their area. They love it.

It gives me a thrill to meet people that want to clean up roadside trash and I have seen the results of their efforts. As the word spreads, I have a feeling that I will be giving away more bag holders to folks in our area.

I'm hooked on Thriftyfun!!

I don't think it is gross at all. I use my hands all the time when I am cooking. They are my favorite tool and wash easily.

I think this is a great tip. I have seen people do this on cooking shows too. I try not to have too many uni-taskers in my kitchen. As I rarely need to separate eggs, I will be trying your technique the next time.

Thanks, Jess. I just saw in another article by likekinds that was submitted 2 years ago. He had discovered the same trick. It is quick and easy and I just may keep on doing it this way. I love gadgets that have multiple uses and my hands are one of them.
