Time with Cynthia: Poaching an egg

Love runny poached eggs? Then you're bound to love this method of poaching eggs that gets you a beautifully poached egg in under 5 minutes.

You'll only need fresh eggs, vinegar & hot water. It's that simple!

Here are the simple steps: 

1) Boil the water or use hot water from a kettle.
2) Bring the water to a simmering boil (small fire).
3) Crack your FRESH egg into a clean bowl. (Use fresh eggs as they poach better)
4) To the small pot of water, add a tablespoon of vinegar and stir well. 
5) Create a gentle whirlpool by stirring the water in the pot in one direction. 
6) Gently pour the egg into the pot. 
7) Allow egg to cook for 3 minutes.
8) Remove using a slotted spoon/sieve to drain away most of the water.
9) Place egg into a basin/bowl of iced water (This is optional. I did not do this step)
10) Drain egg on pieces of kitchen towel.

11) Pat dry with kitchen towel gently before serving.

Here's a video to help you visualise it better! (:

Enjoy your poached egg! (:
