Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Things You Will Need...

1 bowl or jug to put your egg in.

1 egg (size of your choice)

1 empty plastic water bottle, make sure this bottle is felxible (you can squeeze it)

Step 2: Egg Into Bowl

Crack your egg into your jug or bowl.

Step 3: Removing the Yolk.

Squeeze your plastic bottle, place the end (where you would drink from) on the yolk completely covering a section of it. Do not press to hard on the yolk or it will break.

Step 4: Getting the Yolk.

Slowly release your grip on the bottle, so it starts contracting and it will slowly start to pull the yolk into the bottle, make sure not to squeeze the bottle again or the yolk will come out.

Step 5: Done

You have your egg whites without yolk.

Many thanks for viewing my instructable.

    I enjoyed learning this technique. It is a lot less messy than the strain-it-through-my-fingers technique I learned back in the 1990s. And I happen to start needing such help now that I've begun a mad season of baking. Being old and disabled I need something to keep me busy and thinking I'm productive. And my neighbors will appreciate my using your technique, even though I keep my hands clean regularly. hahaha

    Yes, its a very clean way of separating your eggs, also it is quite quick...especially when you need to be cooking quite fast at this festive time of year :D
