The The Bakers Dozen: Pasturized Sugared Yolks

Hello all!

I just started as Pastry chef in a small kitchen and inherited serveral quarts of sugared yolks. My thoughts were to utilize them in ice cream bases. Any ideas? Thanks!

Make french buttercream and keep it in the freezer.

Keep it frozen until you need it, a few uses...
Pastry cream , buy some frozen egg whites and use them both instead of separating fresh eggs.
Brioche dough, yolk wash, mayo for the cooks or compound butter sauces.
Cookies, in fact it can be used to enrichen a lot of things if loosened up with a fresh egg or two.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've worked with liquid yolks & whites in the past, but never sugared yolks. Great time savers.

Is there a rule of thumb with regards to the % of sugar in these yolks? For example, if I make a pastry cream, do I need to add any additional sugar?

Thanks again!

The carton should list the percentage of sugar, I've always ignored the sugar as its not enough to make a big difference. All yolks, if frozen, contain sugar. At least all the ones I've seen.
I don't know what the difference is between frozen and liquid. It doesn't keep very well , I've only seen yolks sold frozen, never liquid.

Cheers, Gerard

Are these frozen eggs or shelf stable sugared egg yolks?
Shelf stable eggs have 2/3 of water removed and replaced with sugar. the high sugar concentration prevents mold or bacterial growth. their composition is:
25% solids
25% water
50% sugar
to use you replace eggs pound for pound and decrease formula sugar 8oz. and increase water 8oz.
