I really like egg whites.

This posting has been designated as off-topic for the PerlMonks web site. Please do not respond to it.

So I was just thinking, I like eggs whites a lot; and, I have 4 dozen eggs. Each one of my dozens consists of exactly 12 eggs: thus, I have 48 eggs. They are white eggs, and in cardboard box identified as being of type "Large".

I'm looking for a fast way to utilize the Egg whites, filtering out the egg yellows. Something akin to

SELECT stuff FROM egg WHERE color IS WHITE

Not, that I'm racist or anything.

I realize such a filtering method isn't kosher. I know very little about the composition of the egg; however, I'm looking to get just the substance that is white. Speed is of great concern: I need to do the least amount of iterative work possible. If theory permits, I highly prefer to operate on the set as a whole.

I had eggs before. I've tried a few thing few things on the previous sets but my current strategy remains more akin alchemy. Further progress into the development of a successful technique has been stagnant. So far, my theory is that when the equilibrium of yellow-white is violated a new product is produced in a massive egg-reaction of sort. Reversal of this process appears to be beyond the scope of modern technology. I've read the googles and I've been unable to find much research done on this new undesired hybrid substance.

I've tried consulting God to no avail. He acknowledges the eggs are his but says I should not be messing with them. I think that this well guarded secret might lead to greater revelation, namely a cure for AIDs. There also appears to be a clue written in some obscure tongue on the box, presumably by the race of people that created the eggs: "Grado Grende Huevos."

Please advise.

    You could buy powdered egg-whites.

    Also, egg-white and egg-yolk are more easily separated after preparation. For instance, you could fry your egg, then when done, use a chefs ring to cut away the egg-yolk.

    Or you could just not eat the egg-yolk.

      They also sell egg whites in cartons. Look for them in your grocer's dairy section :-)

    Oh man, there's this technology called search engines? Searching for "egg separator" yields a page on Amazon. I'm sure you'll find a solution there.
