A lot of recipes call for separating egg yolk from the egg whites. Phoebe Lapine shows you three easy ways to do just that!
First, prepare two small bowls, one for the egg yolk and one for the egg whites. The first way to separate the egg yolk is to use the egg shell to transfer the yolk back and forth letting all of the whites drip out into one of the small bowls.
The second way is to actually crack open the entire egg into one bowl and use an empty plastic water bottle to suction the yolk portion up. Then, once the egg yolk is in the water bottle, simply transfer it into the second yolk bowl by letting it drip out of the water bottle.
The last method of separating egg yolk is the old-fashioned ways, using your hands! Crack the egg and place the yolk on your palm and let all the egg whites fall out from between your fingers into the egg white bowl. This way is a little messy but all you have to do is make sure you wash your hands afterwards!

00:00:02.379 --> 00:00:04.329
So, a lot of baking recipes call for
00:00:04.329 --> 00:00:07.059
you to separate the egg
yolks from the egg whites.
00:00:07.059 --> 00:00:11.419
I'm Phoebe Lapine, and I'm gonna show
you three easy ways to do just that.
00:00:11.419 --> 00:00:18.381
So, the first way, is to use the eggshell
to transfer the yolk back and
00:00:18.381 --> 00:00:24.639
forth, letting all of the whites
drip out into the bowl below.
00:00:24.639 --> 00:00:29.979
Then once you get every last bit,
separate into another bowl.
00:00:29.979 --> 00:00:36.233
The second way is to actually put
the entire egg into the bowl,
00:00:36.233 --> 00:00:43.459
and use this fancy, handy dandy,
empty water bottle to suction it up.
00:00:43.459 --> 00:00:49.499
And you just wanna let all
the excess egg white drip out.
00:00:49.499 --> 00:00:51.479
And you can add that to your other bowl.
00:00:51.479 --> 00:00:54.899
The last way is just the old
fashioned way, to use your hands.
00:00:54.899 --> 00:00:59.080
So just crack it,
right into your palm, and
00:00:59.080 --> 00:01:04.740
let all of the egg white fall
out from between your fingers.
00:01:04.740 --> 00:01:06.539
Make sure to wash your hands afterwards.
00:01:06.539 --> 00:01:11.940
Now, we have our yolks and
our whites, all ready to go.
