Due to high cholesterol I am on a no egg yolk diet. Does anyone have a no-food use for the yolks? It hurts me to toss them down the sink!!
Use yolks for facials if you have dry skin.
You can freeze the yolks for someone else who does alot of baking, but note the following:
Egg yolks will thicken or gel when frozen and may become impossible to use in a recipe unless they receive special treatment. To retard this gelation, beat in either 1/8 teaspoon (1/2 mL) salt or 1 1/2 teaspoon (7 mL) sugar or corn syrup per 1/4 cup of egg yolks (50 mL, i.e. about 4 yolks).
Label with the number of yolks, the date and whether you added salt (for main dishes) or sugar (for desserts or baking). Substitute 1 tablespoon (15 mL) thawed yolk for 1 large fresh yolk.
Make Some Egg Tempera Paint:
Egg tempera is made from egg yolks, a little water and some pigment. Click on the link below for instructions.
Why not use eggbeaters? Also, now the stores sell plain egg whites. Makes good egg dishes. Give it a try.
Do you have a dog? Dogs love the yolks, actually they love eggs, raw or cooked.
