Hi, you are watching VisiHow. Today we are going to show you how to separate egg yolks from egg whites using your hands and without breaking the yolk. We will also go ahead and show you how to get eggshells out of the bowl if you make a mess, or you make a mistake and get an eggshell in your egg.

Steps

  1. 1
    First, we are not going to use the technique that we described earlier where you cracked an egg one hand because this is a slightly different process.
    We are still going to use our technique of smacking the egg down on a hard object. However, you can use a hard break as well if you prefer. However, I maintain that technique is bad, so we are going to stick with a flat break. Hit the egg on a hard surface.

    Now what we are going to do is using two hands we are going to separate this egg very carefully, and let the white of the egg fall out into the bowl.

    Once that is mostly out, we are going to dump the egg yolk into our hand.
    We now have this little egg yolk in our hand.

    I am going to pull this white cord off of the yolk.
    You have to be careful when doing this because sometimes it can break the yolk.

    Now we are going to open it up, just like before, we are going to be careful so that we do not cut the yolk on the edge of the shell.

    Dump the a yolk into your hand and let it roll through your fingers.
    If you lift weights or if you make yourself shakes, for anyone who needs egg yolks, In my case a lot of times I will make a shake after I lift weights and exercise or whatever. Honestly, I do not lift weights that much anymore but back in the day when I was a younger man, I would use this technique to separate in egg yolk and add that to my shake. It's a nice, simple, and easy technique.

    Now, I have two perfect little yolks.
    Let me wash my hands because I don't want to get egg all over my bowl. I don't mind getting egg all over my hands. Going to use a little soap on my hands as I wash them because of the risk of salmonella contamination.

    If you were to get a piece of eggshell in the egg whites, that is actually a big piece, there is a trick to getting it out easily.

    Another trick, when you need to pick up a napkin with wet hands, tap it with your finger and it will lift up a side that you can pick up with your thumb.
    Nice and easy.

    Now you can see in our bowl, we have some eggshell in here.
    All you do is take a piece of your old eggshell and you reach in and scoop it out. For whatever reason this works easily. There we go I got my three pieces of eggshell out of my egg white easily and without removing much of the egg white. The same technique also works for egg yolks. You can take eggshells out of egg yolks just as easily.
