    How To Poach an Egg




    It's as easy as 1-2-3!

    I love eggs...and lately I've been poaching them to eat with my salads or on toast. I'm no poaching expert, in fact, I don't consider my poached egg to even be aesthetically appealing...yet! But they are easy and quick to prepare, and healthy too with no added fats to worry about.

    The following technique for poached eggs is the one I used and is taken from the site, Simply Recipes :

    • Fresh eggs
    • 1 to 2 teaspoons vinegar (rice vinegar works well) (optional)

    Equipment needed

    • Shallow saucepan with cover
    • Slotted spoon


    METHOD

    1 First bring water in a saucepan to almost boiling. If the water is already boiling, lower the heat until it is no longer boiling. At this point, you can add one or two teaspoons of vinegar to the water, if you want. The vinegar will help the egg whites to congeal more easily. We use seasoned rice vinegar.
    2 Working with the eggs one by one, crack an egg into a small cup, then place the cup near the surface of the hot water and gently drop the egg into the water. With a spoon, nudge the eggwhites closer to their yolks. This will help the egg whites hold together.
    3 Turn off the heat. Cover. Let sit for 4 minutes, until the egg whites are cooked.
    4 Lift eggs out of pan with a slotted spoon.
    One trick to make the eggs stay somewhat contained is to take a ring from a mason jar and place it in the pan. Drop the egg over the mason jar ring and let it settle in the ring, then turn off the heat and cover.

    • Working with 1 egg at a time, crack an egg on to a saucer. ...
    • Fill a bowl with cold water and set aside. ...
    • Slide egg from saucer into centre of whirlpool, as close to water as possible. ...
    • Using a slotted spoon, transfer egg to the bowl of cold water (this stops the cooking process).
