- Neat! I came here to ask what you used to poach it so perfectly. ??
- Poaching is incredibly easy, the main trick is fresh eggs! The older they get the less they hold together. Make a whirl, crack the egg. When plonking the egg in the water, be gentle and let it fall in delicately and quickly. Lastly the water needs to be at the point just before simmering.
- Also, spin the water with a whisk before you add the egg. The fresh yolk with spin around in a perfect circle.
- When you say fresh eggs do you mean ones that were recently laid? I usually just get whichever eggs are on sale or go for the cage free ones. I heat up water in a deep frying pan, throw in some vinegar, and plop it in. Mine come out mostly as intended but it isn't the same as when I've had it professionally cooked. Too watery or too under cooked. I need more practice. Gotta make Ramsey proud!
- Yes, if you go to the shops check the sell by date, deep pan saucepan, water and salt. There are many ways to poach eggs, I find this method I rarely cock up.
- Okay, I'll start checking those dates. Thanks for the tips!
- You can test how fresh an egg is by placing it in a bowl of water. If it sinks completely it's fresh, if it stand on end and slightly sinks it's still good to eat just not fresh and if it floats it's not fresh at all. This is because an air pocket forms as the egg ages.
- You also need vinegar in the boiling water so the egg can hold its shape better
- And cook for exactly 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to recover the egg. EDIT: also, when placing the egg into the water ever so delicately, you can use a small drinking glass. Just crack the egg into the glass and quickly dunk it into the tornado of water and tilt the egg out.
- Or use a measuring cup. I have a set of metal cups that are slightly oval shaped and they work pretty well for this, but I'm sure round ones would work fine too. Read more comments
