What do you do with l'ftover egg yolks? - Page 2

post #16 of 26
You can make a lemon or any citrus curd with it...
I use 4 egg whites for something, and use the 4 yolk for Rose Levy's Lemon Curd recipe.

The iron is in the egg yolks that is true, but so is the fat. Sometimes I buy the Omega-3 eggs when I am going to be eating them and not just baking with them. I am on a diet so I take one whole egg and mix it with two egg whites and pitch the yolks down the kitchen sink. Better the sink gets clogged than my hubby's arteries. But mainly I am doing it to cut back on the fat and calories for me. I feel guilty every time I do it, that is true, but I don't want anything homemade around that will tempt me. I am still baking, but only for company mixed with hubby around.
Normally when I have the yolks, I would use them.
But right about now, I don't like it when "the yolks on me"! Sorry couldn't resist!
Used to buy a hair conditioner with egg yolks in it. Hhmn, with my luck now, it would just give me a fat head!

I'm not attacking you, I'm just stating my opinion, and it happens to be different than yours.

LOL!! Not a fat head--just really soft and shiney hair! I usually end up cooking some of the yolks for the dogs--it makes their coats shiney and helps with the shedding.

Haha Lisa, well I could use the help to stop shedding, but I am a bit concerned about stopping at every fire hydrant on the street, hhmn!

LOL!! Ok wait--that came out wrong! I meant that if you use them as a conditioner on YOUR hair--you know--slop it on your wet head and wait a couple of minutes--rinse--then YOU would get soft, shiney hair.

Now--about the dogs--they eat them.

I SO wish that using them as a conditioner would stop ME from shedding. I swear, I'm losing so much hair these days it's scary. My dh is going to have a bald wife if this doesn't stop.

Now.....about those fire hydrants......LOLOLOLOL!!

Heehee, thought you were giving them an "egg wash" there, haha! Talk about carrying the baking too far!

Hmmm-maybe I should try it! It's spring and the dogs are just exploding. I see a close shave coming in their very, very near future. I'm sure an "egg wash" would be much more pleasant for them than a trip to the groomer--or worse yet--me attempting the "field cut" (that's the technical term for shaving a dog!)
