It's called "chalazae" technically - and it is part of the white. It's more pronounced in really fresh eggs ... after 7-10 days you might not even notice it because it is not as translucent.

Yea, elf - one time I was doing something that required 12 eggs and I got a little too cockey - "I" could do it faster and certainly didn't need all those steps, and bowls, my grandmas used. My theory was working just fine ... until egg #12.

My dad just wanted it warmed from the fridge. On the farm in Norway where he grew up, they would grab the egg where it dropped for a snack. Ugh. He never lost his taste for the raw egg.
