How to: Poach an egg.

I'd like to wish you all a Happy St. Patrick's Day. 

  You can use any type of egg you want for this, but I have never done it with anything else but white chicken eggs.
You will need rice or champagne vineger for this. With my experience, they are the best possible choice. You can use any other kind besides balsamic and apple cider vinegers because you will end up with dyed eggs. Do you want orange poached eggs? Well, whatever egg you happen to find, this recipe will work.

1 egg
2 quarts of water
1 tbsp rice or champagne vinegar

Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil.
Crack your egg into a small, glass bowl.
Put vinegar into the water. Once the water comes to a simmer, turn the heat down to medium- low.
Carefully place the bowl with the egg in it into the water. Let cook for 3-5 minutes depending your personal taste.
Let cool and take out of bowl.
You should have a perfectly round egg.
