Kitchen hack shows how to separate an egg yolk from white with a clove of garlic

A cooking enthusiast has shared a mind-bending trick for separating an egg yolk from the white and people think it's "magic".

Separating eggs can be tricky and the most common methods are tipping the yolk between shell halves while gently spilling out the whites, or using your fingers to sieve the white.

In a clip, TikTok user @callumgray0 shows his game-changing hack which makes getting the yolk out look ridiculously simple.

Firstly, he cracks the egg into a bowl and peels a clove of garlic.

He then rubs his fingers on the garlic until they are covered in the sticky juice and pinches the egg yolk and lifts it up and out of the bowl.

The yolk doesn't break and is put completely intact into another bowl.

Unsurprisingly, the trick has gone viral with more than 6 million views and 1.3 million "likes" since it was uploaded just four days ago on January 23.

Thousands of food lovers admit to being baffled, with one joking he must be "Harry Potter" and others calling the hack "magic".

"How does one figure this out?" commented one person.

A second confessed: "My jaw dropped and never came back."

But some people snubbed the hack and hinted it might be impractical or even make the food taste bad.

"Legend has it his hands still smell of garlic to this day," joked one person.

A second person complained: "It’s all good until your dessert starts tasting like garlic."

The egg yolk contains most of the fat and flavour and has a rich savoury taste, while the white can be whipped up into fluffy meringues.

Unfortunately, if even a tiny amount of the oil-rich yolk is mixed in egg white it won't be able to foam.

This comes after a home cook experimented with making mashed potatoes from a packet of crisps and cheese with a horrific result.
