As someone who doesn't like wasting food, I'm always looking for ways to use leftover ingredients. I have a bag in my freezer and collect all the vegetable scraps and bones until it's enough to make a batch of bone broth. I also use leftover lemon peel to make homemade vinegar and use it as environmental-friendly, chemicals-free all-purpose citrus cleaner.
But how about egg yolks and egg whites? Not all recipes require both and you may end up wondering what to do with them. As long as you make sure that you store raw egg whites or egg yolks sealed in the fridge for no more than two days, they can be used in other recipes.
Freezing tips for eggs
Egg yolks don't freeze very well - they become too thick when frozen. However, there is a trick you can use if you plan to use them in a savoury recipe: simply add a pinch of salt (about 1/4 teaspoon per 8 egg yolks), beat in, seal well and freeze for up to 3 months.
Yes, you can place egg whites in freezer bags and freeze in batches for up to 3 months. When ready to be used, defrost in the fridge overnight.
