Fold, Folding, to Fold
A method of gently mixing ingredients without decreasing their volume, i.e. Folding nuts into whipped egg whites.
To fold, use a rubber spatula to cut down vertically through the mixture from the back of the bowl. Move the spatula across the bottom of the bowl, and bring it back up the other side, carrying some of the mixture from the bottom up over the surface. Repeat these steps, rotating the bowl one-fourth of a turn each time you complete the process.
