An egg-stra tip

About that tip on using a funnel to separate an egg: I don't know if was because I was using a larger funnel than usual, or if the egg was older and the white was sticking more to the eggshell, but when I cracked the egg into the funnel, the yolk blocked the neck of the funnel and the white just sat on top of it. I was able to salvage and separate the egg by pouring it back into the shell, but so much for a time-saving tip, at least when using a larger than normal funnel and a less-than-right-out-from-under-the-chicken egg.


  1. Darn. When you revealed this tip at Shrine Mont it sounded like one of the greatest things since sliced bread.

  2. Yes, I was quite disappointed myself. But better to find it out before stuck in a kitchen before a big dinner with three dozen eggs to separate.
