Weekend Musings: Fun Way to Separate Egg Yolk

Hi chowtimes readers, I came across this interesting way of separating egg yolk on youtube. Hope you’ll find it useful.

    The little bouncy yolk is kind of cute. Better use nice fresh eggs or the yolk could pop – which would be a disaster if whipping the egg whites.

    Fun !

    But she makes a very common mistake right off the bat ….. cracking the egg on the edge of the bowl. Best way to prevent pieces of eggshell to end up in the mixture is to crack it on an flat surface. If yolk separation is not required, this is how I do it:


    If separation is required, simply catch the yolk in one half of the eggshell, rock it back and forth into the other half until all the white has dripped into the bowl, then transfer to yolk to its own vessel for further use.

    Your video link does not work? The only thing I could click on is this smokey bear link?

    Weird, Kenny. Still works for me, either left-click directly, or right-click and choose “open link in new tab”.

    Jaden Har of Steamy Kitchen showed how to do it also. She showed it many months ago.
