How to Remove Yolk from Eggs

Eggs have much importance in our life. They can be used in many ways. Eggs are used in foods. Different recipes are incomplete without eggs. They are also the ingredients for painting. Eggs are also the essential ingredient of shampoos and other beauty products.  Eggs can be used as a combination of white and yolk. But sometimes you need to use only one part, either white or the yolk. In such a case, you need to separate yolk from the egg. Following is the procedure by which you can easily separate both the parts of the eggs from each other:

  • You will need three bowls for this purpose. One will have the white in it and the second will be used to put the separated yolk. The third bowl is to use when an egg is cracked and has white already mixed with the yolk.
  • Take the eggs from the refrigerator and crack them immediately. The colder the eggs, the more firm white it will have. Thus it will become easier for you to separate yolk from it.

  • Put the egg on your hand in a way that its rounded part is grasped with your middle and index fingers while its two smaller edges are covered with thumb and the little finger. Now tap it slightly on some hard surface such as the table top. Don’t tap it on the edge of any bowl or else it will get crack in smaller pieces that can be mixed with the white.
  • Now hold the egg so that middle finger comes in front of the crack. Take the bowl and pour the white out of the egg in it.
  • Now there are two ways by which you can separate the yolk of the egg. First way is to pour the white in the bowl not allowing the yolk to come out. In this way yolk will remain in the egg shell. Second way is to put the eggs content on your hand and allow the white to pass through your fingers into the bowl. Now pour the yolk in the other bowl.
  • There can be a possibility that any egg crack is also mixed with the yolk or the white. In this situation use the shell of the egg to put it out.

Now you have both the bowls full of white and yolk. You can use this white to add to cake. You can also use it apply to your face. This white is now fully separated and can be used for any purpose you wanted to use it for.
