How long can you keep raw egg yolks in the fridge?

Sarah W-R | Aug 19, 2004 09:42 PM

I made a couple of egg-white omelets recently, and I saved the yolks from the eggs I used in a Tupperware in the fridge, thinking I would make a zabaglione ice cream recipe from the (London) River Cafe cookbook that requires a lot of yolks. Now I'm ready to make the ice cream, but I'm wondering if, after several days, the yolks are safe to eat. I'll be cooking them to almost boiling in the recipe, but not of course actually boiling them. So, basically, how long can you keep separated raw eggs in the fridge?
