Egg yolks and whites have different uses in cooking. Egg yolks are used to enrich dishes with their fat content, whilst egg whites can be aerated and frothed up to lighten batters and help them rise.
Can eggs be frozen for later use?
Both egg yolks and whites can be frozen; whites are easier to freeze.
How to freeze egg yolks:
the best way to freeze egg yolks is to whisk them before putting them in an air-tight container with a pinch of salt to stop them getting too thick when frozen. Defrost overnight in the fridge before using. Remember to label the container with the number of egg yolks to make it easier to follow recipes once thawed.
How to freeze egg whites:
egg whites freeze well, they can be frozen individually in an ice cube tray then stored in a freezer-safe container so that they are already portioned up. Always defrost eggs in the fridge before using and use them straight away, once defrosted.
How long do egg yolks last in the fridge?
Cracked-open eggs keep for up to four days in the fridge. If you don’t think you’ll use them in the near future, your best best is to freeze them. Store the egg yolks in a similar way as when freezing; whisk them up and keep in an airtight container. Keep eggs whites in a sealed tub until you’re ready to use them.
