HOW to PERFECTLY POACH an EGG:
The COOK'S ILLUSTRATED TECHNIQUE
Hands-on time: 10 minutes
Time to table: 10 minutes
Makes 4 poached eggs
Kosher salt or sea salt
4 large eggs
Salt & pepper
Fill a shallow skillet with about 1-1/2 inches of water, an 8-inch skillet works for two eggs, a 12-inch works for four eggs. Add salt (about 1/2 tablespoon) and vinegar (a big splash, about a tablespoon). Bring the water to a hard boil, a good ‘n’ bubbly boil.
While the water comes to a boil, crack the eggs into small bowls (I use small ramekins), one per egg or one per person if you don't mind a couple of eggs poaching together. Dig out a slotted spoon, preferably one only slightly larger than an egg. Place a single layer of paper towel over a plate. Keep all these nearby.
Once the water boils, work quickly:

1 tablespoon vinegar (cheap stuff will do)
1.Add 2” of water to a large pot of water, then add the vinegar. Cover with a lid and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Meanwhile crack the eggs into 4 small bowls or ramekins.
2.When the water is at a rolling boil, remove the lid, and turn down the heat so there are still bubbles forming at the bottom of the pot, but the surface of the water is still. Carefully lower the ramekins into the water and tip the eggs out into the hot water one at a time.
3.Leave the eggs to cook undisturbed until they are cooked to your liking. You can test for this by lifting the egg out of the water and gently poking it with your finger. The white should be firm, and if you want a soft yolk, prod the yolk to see if it’s soft or firm.
4.When the eggs are done, remove them from the pot with a slotted spoon one egg at a time and onto a double layer of paper towels to drain off the excess water. Serve the eggs with buttered toast.
Follow posted recipe instructions from a variety of internet sources, or from the recipes posted here. Then leave out one minor detail in the recipe. By doing so this will make your poached eggs ALMOST perfect. If you want perfect poacched eggs follow the recipe to a T.

When you buy a dozen eggs do you check that each egg is not broken or cracked before you buy?I always stand there and check each and every egg before I buy a dozen. My theory is if I pay for a dozen I need a dozen. What about you? Do you pick up a dozen of eggs and put them in the...
