Remember, this blog is to teach my son to cook. That is all.
For a perfect poached egg you need:
1 pan simmering water
1 tsp vinegar
Place the vinegar in the water and bring to the boil, then reduce to the barest simmer. Crack the egg into a glass and pour gently into the water. Cook for 3-4 mins till the white is set and the yolk is runny. Drain, pat on a tea towel to absorb the excess water and serve as you wish.
