Fun Fact Friday


Happy Friday, Noshers!  Oh man, another crazy week! I’m sure looking forward to the long weekend and catching up with some friends and on rest!  Today’s fun fact is a useful tip that you can use in the kitchen:

Separate the yolk from an egg using simple science – suction! All you need is a disposable water bottle.  Squeeze the water bottle and hold it over the yolk (touching the yolk).  Release the pressure from the bottle and suction will pull the egg up into the bottle.  Squeeze the water bottle again (over a separate bowl or plate) to release the yolk.

I usually use the “egg shell transfer” method, but the water bottle method is super easy and fun!

How do you usually separate eggs?

    I just had to comment. This is awesome! I had no idea. I usually just use my fingers.

    Awesome, I use the same method you use. But it’s cool to find out other interesting ways to separate yolk and whites!

    Brilliant. I usually use the transfer-between-2-shells method. But suction! Eureka!

    LOVE this tip! Especially since I’m a super klutz who fails at the “egg shell transfer” method!

    They now have a tool that does the same thing as the water bottle, but you don’t need it as any water bottle will do.
