Did you know that you can use a plastic bottle for a lot of things.. including separating your egg whites from the egg yolks?
It is actually very simple to do... after a little bit of practice. I had some expired eggs sitting in the fridge that I decided to test this method out on.
Here is what you need:
- Eggs (any size)
- A medium sized bowl
- An empty plastic bottle
Here is what to do:
- Crack an egg into a bowl.
- Squeeze an empty plastic water bottle slightly while placing the bottle opening over the yolk.
- When you release your grip, the yolk is sucked inside, separating itself from the white. (this can be the tricky part)
- Squeeze the yolk into another bowl and you're done.
Watch the video below on how to separate your egg yolks from the whites using a plastic bottle. Mind blown.
After countless tries and sucking at following directions apparently, I finally was able to separate the yolk from the white. This trick is pretty neat; however, I would rather just use my clean hands to do the separating.
Have you tried the egg trick before?
