When you are separating eggs, you often end up with an excess of yolk or white.
The egg whites, almost pure albumin, freeze well. Defrosted egg whites whip even better than fresh egg whites, and they do not pick up odors. The yolk, high in fat however, does not freeze well. And in addition, yolks easily become freezer burnt. However, they can be kept for a couple of days in the refrigerator covered with a layer of water to prevent a skin from forming on top. Pour water off before using.
To separate the yolk from the white, crack egg on edge of a bowl. Open the egg, keeping one half upright to hold the yolk. Let the white drop into the bowl. Pour the yolk into the empty half shell, letting more white drop into the bowl as you are transferring the yolk from one shell to the other. If a little yolk falls in, take corner of paper towel and get yolk on that.
