Free egg white of rogue yolk before whipping


January 19, 1994|By Rita Calvert | Rita Calvert,Contributing Writer

Q: What can I do if some egg yolk drops or breaks into the white I need to whip?

A: If just a drop has fallen in the white and has not become mixed, use a small part of the shell or a spoon and remove. If a FTC larger amount has fallen in, use a small piece of soft white bread to carefully move the part of the egg white containing the yolk to the side of the bowl and up toward the edge. Holding it there, pour the remaining egg white into another container.

Q: I have read about a culinary sack that is placed inside the cavity of poultry, stuffed and then removed after baking. What is it and where can I purchase it?

A: The culinary sack is also called a turkey stuffing bag and is manufactured by Clipper Mill Company in San Francisco. This bag, made of cheesecloth, enables the juices from the bird to penetrate the bag and flavor the stuffing. The entire bag with stuffing is then neatly removed after the bird is cooked, leaving the cavity clean. For availability, check with Kitchen Bazaar or other kitchenware stores in your area or write to: Clipper Mill Company, P.O. Box 420376, San Francisco, Calif. 94101.
