Needed the whites for something, but don't want to waste the yolks. What can you make with them? And can they be frozen? (I seem to think not--only whites.) TIA.

I leave them in bowls in the garden - the hedgehogs love them.

In spainish supermarkets they had tubs of tiny egg yolks for sale - what on earth they do with them I have no idea. Whymummy would know.

heat some double cream add to egg yolks, sugar and vinilla, put in small ramikin dishish and bake in oven in a dish/tray of water, then sprinkle with sugar, under the grill for 2 mins. Yummy yummy, ready to eat.
