Thumbs up Cool way to separate egg yolks, and recycle too!



Video isn't in English but it's pretty self-explanatory. The real action starts about 25 seconds in.

I just pick up the yolk and separate from the white between my fingers. (Wash hands well first and between each egg). But, I am working with very fresh eggs.

Thank you very very much, CWS4322. Here is my problem: I remembered seeing somebody separating them with fingers, but I thought I just have dreamed it, not really seen it. Now I'm in peace with myself.

Jacques Pepin always did it that way on his cooking show and the show he was on with Julia Child...that may be what you remember. It works.

Thanks CWS4322, I really can't remember where i saw it, but I watch too many things on the web, need to cut this down
I think I'll try with the bottle method first, it looks so amusing

I often separate eggs using my fingers as a strainer. That bottle trick looks very nifty and efficient.

I want to try this... and I don't even need eggs separated right now...

That is neat-o.
