What do you do with those egg yolks??
You can FREEZE them. Yeah!!
WHAT YOU NEED
Ice cube trays
Ice lolly trays
A freezer bag
A permanent marker
Get yourself 1 or 2 ice cube trays or ice lolly trays and a freezer bag (each individual lolly holder holds about 2 yolks and the ice cube trays, 1 yolk). How you prepare the yolks for freezing depends on what you’ll use the yolks for. Will you use them for savory or sweet dishes. I use mine for both so I keep separate trays.
To freeze the yolks, you need to beat in about an 1/8 of a teaspoon of salt or 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of sugar (I use unrefined brown or coconut sugar) with every 4 yolks. Don’t freeze the yolks as is as they go a really funny texture. Been there ;). When done, divide into the trays and freeze. Make sure you date the freezer bag you put the trays in.
The frozen yolks should keep for about 2 months.
I use my yolks for a multitude of things. I make my own custard and ice cream. I add them to baking and I use them to make chocolate pots and spaghetti carbonara.
Carbonara recipe coming up as well as a flourless brownie each using those yolks!
