Tips for poaching your eggs:

The best advice for poaching eggs is to use newer eggs and to put vinegar in your water! I usually put about 4 cups of water and 1 tbsp of vinegar. This is a good ratio that will keep your eggs from developing air pockets that will make them too runny. Also, right before you place them in the water, crack them into a ramekin. This will help them set gently down into the water. Another thing you should do right before you put the eggs into the water is create a whirlpool in the water. You can do this by using a wooden spoon to swirl the water right before you drop the eggs in. Cook the eggs in the water for exactly 3 minutes. Then, take a slotted spoon to scoop the eggs out.
