    This evening we made a batch of deviled eggs.  When we removed the cooked yolk we noticed a small amount of water in the emptied whites.  It seems to have been trapped between the yolks and the whites.  How can this be?  What causes this?  How can it be prevented?  We had to dry the whites by hand using a paper towel to soak up the water.

    Thanks!
