I actually poached an egg today. I figured I’d give it a try, when making a salad. I’d tried before, a while ago, and felt like Julie, in Julie and Julia, before she actually managed to get one done. My eggs fell apart, just became a runny, gross mess. It wasn’t pretty, it didn’t make me happy, I felt like an utter poaching-failure!

But today, I poached an egg!

At first I thought it didn’t work yet again. And was willing to give up. Give up on poaching eggs forever. But then I realized that unless you use eggs that you’ve pretty much pulled out of the chicken, there’ll be some egg-white-fluff around the poached egg. Once I’d cut up the little bit of fluff, it did look like a REAL poached egg.

I was very proud of myself!

The end!

      Poached eggs are awesome once you get the hang of it! Just keep trying is all I can say, it took me forever to get them to work. The key really is fresh eggs and a BIG splash of vinegar in the water (and having the water simmer, not boil hard.) If you get those 3 things right, and try about a million times, you will get awesome, awesome poached eggs! Good luck!!!
