Step by Step Way to Make Poached Eggs
The steps required are set out below:
STEP 1 The Chook (Chicken)
To make good quality poached eggs you need a good free-range chook ( as they are called in Australia), preferably one that you have raised in your own back-yard. The eggs from a happy home-grown chook will have lovely yellow yolks, clear white and firm shells that will break nicely in two pieces. Dropping soft-shelled eggs into the boiling water can be a real disaster.
STEP 2 The Coop (Hen House)
The best quality poached eggs come from very fresh eggs and the freshest eggs come straight from the chicken Coop - all warm and lovely. So each morning just before breakfast slip out to the coop in the backyard and get a freshly laid egg from under the feathers of the mother hen. The brown eggs are best.
STEP 3 Cooking the Egg
The cooking process is very simply - rather like boiling an egg when the egg breaks.
- Bring a saucepan of water, about one quarter full to the boil.
- Lower the heat and wait about 30 seconds until the water stops boiling.
- Add a tablespoon of white vinegar to the water - this helps hold the egg together (optional - some people don't like the vinegar taste).
- Use the scoop to get the water swirling around. This creates a centrifugal force that draws the egg together into the centre of the saucepan.
- Watch the egg and remove it using the scoop
STEP 4 The Scoop
The best scoop is a plastic one with slotted grooves. You will need a medium size one that is just the same size as a poached egg.
