Frozen egg whites - to pavs?

Hi there
If I freeze up some egg whites that I don't want to use just now, will they beat up ok after they have thawed out so I can make a pav or similar later on!
Thanks very much

Absolutely, egg whites freeze well.

do you beat them up first or just normal.!
Id like to do that also in batches of 4 xeggwhites.

I just freeze the egg whites as they are then defrost and use as fresh ones.

arabelle I have just done the eggs in the freezer. What happened was we thought our hens had stopped laying so I got some shop eggs, then the neighbour gave me a dozen of theirs and then our hens warmed up again so my fridge was full of eggs.
So I have taken a dozen eggs, separated each one. The egg white I poured into an ice cube container (I didn't beat them or anything) - my egg whites needed 2 cubes per egg and I have a small muffin tin for little cupcake size cakes so I put the yolks in those. All are in the freezer and I will bag them when frozen solid.
Also I made sure the ice cube container especially was very clean so I can beat the egg whites later with no fats etc in them.
I also read that you can still use the frozen eggs for things like scrambled eggs later - just not fried eggs as they have been separated.
So I think this will work well and now I have to do some baking with some of the remaining eggs in the fridge :)
