A friend who worked in another wing of the Maryknoll Sisters’ kitchen at the same time I was working in the bakery sent me a fabulous method imported from China for separating eggs. (Don’t worry if you don’t understand Mandarin. It’s completely unnecessary to accomplishing the task.)
Yes, I confess I tried it. It works just like a dream, but it’s hardly worth the effort when you are separating eggs for only two people.
The Maryknoll bakery, though, was baking for 350.
I would have loved to show Sister Anne Cecelia how it works! Somehow, I think she might have been more impressed than Mother Mary Coleman was with my attempts to teach her about Karl Rahner and the encyclicals of John XXIII.
