Q: Every morning I have two egg whites as part of my breakfast. I buy whole eggs instead of the stuff in the cartons (so expensive!). I came across a lemon curd recipe and started saving the yolks to make curd to give away.

Now that all friends and relations far and near are set for life with lemon curd, what else can I do with the yolks? I’d hate to start tossing them but I need more ideas. Help!

Editor: Katie, our main suggestion would be to make custard, or ice cream! A rich custard takes a lot of egg yolks, and is simple to make. Here are a couple recipes that would suit.

That’s just one idea, though. Readers, what would you suggest for Katie’s egg yolks?
