It was my father who taught me how to poach eggs when I was a little kid. I asked him to teach me though as I was always mesmerized by the beautiful poached eggs he made. I mean, how could this easy to get inexpensive product turned in a white perfect bubble filled with running warm gold fluid in just a couple of minutes!? Almost like Chocolate fondant but then different. oke.. not almost.. and also SUPER DIFFERENT.. but let's just say .. natures chocolate fondant ;D
Oke I have to stop writing about chocolate fondant.. now I'm craving for it..urhg.. Where was I? Oh yeah.. Them Poached Eggs.
Well Scroll down below and follow my easy steps on how you can Poach the perfect eggs starting today!
- Super fresh happy Eggs as much as you want honey!
- organic white vinegar (this will help the eggs to form smooth and nicely)
- Thinly sliced Zucchini Grilled with some salt
Oke I don't think I have to explain you guys how to grill the zucchini right. So let's get to business and follow these easy steps to poach eggs.
Get yourself a medium sized pan and fill it half up with water and just a teaspoon of vinegar, set it on fire and wait till you see super small bubbles coming up, this is the moment right before the water will set to boil, but you don't want the water to boil. So oke, small bubbles means ACTION.
Use a spoon and make rounds in the water (keep your spoon as close as possible to the pan. You will form a little 'storm' in the pan. Now crack up an egg carefully and let it drop in the middle of the pan.
Wait.. wait a bit.. keep the fire on medium/low. You can see the egg stays in shape because you whisked the water with your spoon. After 3 minutes your egg will be perfect. If you're not sure you can always touch the egg lightly and feel if the egg is still to soft in the center of not. (To make sure you won't get any vinegar flavor. Dip the poached egg in a bowl of cold water and the vinegar taste will vanish)
I sprinkled some Japanese Chili mix on top, but hey I won't get mad at you if you use any other spice to finish it up. Whatever you prefer honey!
Goodluck poaching eggs.
