An EGGciting Internet craze on YouTube! A new way to separate egg whites/yolks using an empty plastic soda bottle. We saw it demonstrated, live, at a cooking demonstration and LOVED the idea The original video is in Japanese − just watch the pictures as it is self explanatory! The second video is in English and is a "take" on the original. We are posting this one just in case you need further explanation. Wish that we would have thought of this – so easy and so clever!
