Poaching in progress


My friend Kim at Starry Sky Ranch has joined with two other women to create Snapshots Around the World. This week's subject is "eggs" and I just happened to have this photo that I recently snapped when I was poaching eggs -- quite a few eggs for my very hungry husband and teenage boys.

It's best to place each egg you are poaching in a small bowl or glass so that you can place the container close to the simmering water and drop it gently. Always add a teaspoon of white vinegar to your poaching water and it will help hold the whites together.

This is something I have never mastered. Haven't tried in some time though so will try the vinegar.

Thanks for the tip and for playing along!

I don't think I've ever poached an egg in my life - unless you count breaking an egg into boiling ramen soup!

Thanks for joining in!

Give it a go, Kim. I saw Smitten Kitchen has a great tutorial. Poached eggs on asparagus would be lovely for your diet. With a little sprinkle of Parmesan -- yum!

You are welcome, Rebecca.

Oh Sue, poached eggs on toast is one of my very favorite breakfasts. But my husband thinks poached eggs are only for Eggs Benedict! ;-)
