I thought it would be fun to do a Super Mom’s Household Tip of the Day post whenever I think of some household tip or trick that I’ve learned along the way to cook better, clean easier or something that just generally makes life run a bit more smoothly.
To get this started, here’s today’s Household Tip of the Day:
If the recipe calls for whipped egg white, you’ll get more volume if the whites are at room temperature.
However, it’s easier to separate eggs that are cold, so separate your eggs while cold making sure that no yolk gets into the whites. Cover and refrigerate the bowl with the yolks to use in other recipes. Cover the bowl with the whites and allow them to come to room temperature.
And since this is tip #1, I’ll add a bonus tip. Even the tiniest amount of grease on the bowl or beaters will stop the whites from whipping to the desired consistency. So wash all bowls and utensils thoroughly in warm soapy water, rinse and dry well before using.
