Ok so you’ve made ice cream and now you have all those leftover yolks.  What to do, what to do.  Well here are some ideas to use that abundance of egg whites.  I have two lovely hens who produce eggs daily for me but despite the fact that they’re ‘free’, I hate to think of wasting the fine efforts my chooks put into their egg production!

Quick tips – EGG WHITES

  • Use egg whites in meringues, pavlovas and Angel Food Cakes, Almond Bread, soufflés, marshmallows, Macaroons, Bombe Alaska, .
  • Make an egg white omelette and add leftover vegetables, ham, bacon or other tasty ingredients.
  • Lightly beat then store, covered, in the fridge for up to 4 days.  Use to seal pastry or to brush over pastry for a shiny finish.  Sprinkle with caster sugar for sweet recipes.
  • Whisk egg whites until loose then whisk through boiling chicken soup and add a little grated parmesan cheese.  Chopped parsley goes beautifully too.

Stay tuned for what to do with leftover yolks!
