Perfect Poached Eggs


1 free-range egg - or as many as your heart desires
Apple cider or white vinegar
Pink himalayan rock salt 


Step one
Fill a small saucepan with boiling water from your jug/kettle. Bring it to a light simmer over a medium heat, and a pinch of pink Himalayan rock salt. Add a splash of apple cider or white vinegar.

Step two
Crack one egg into a small ramekin. Using a whisk, stir the water allowing it to make a whirlpool. As the water settles add your egg to the centre. It will continue to wrap itself in the whites. If it needs a little encouragement slowly swirl the water. 

Step three
Let the egg cook for 2-3 minutes. If you like your egg more firm it will take around 4 minutes.

Step four
Remove the egg using a slotted spoon allow to drain on a paper towel. If you're not serving immediately pop the egg into an bowl of ice and cold water to avoid over-cooking.
