BRITISH BLACKTAIL FREE RANGE EGGS

What makes a good egg?

THE PERFECT POACHED EGG


1. Crack your egg onto a saucer, so it’s easier to slide into the pan.  
2. Add a small splash of vinegar to a pan of cold water, around 5cm deep, and bring to a gentle simmer.
3. Use a spoon to swirl the water, making a whirlpool, and gently slide your egg into the centre. Make sure the heat isn’t too fierce – there should just be small bubbles rising. 
4. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the white is just set then gently lift out with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
