Eggs a Miracle!

Well maybe it all it takes is a bit of complaining. Two fabulous farm fresh eggs from my backyard. If you wake up early enough they are still warm when you collect them. It seems so sad that we are so detached from our food source that an egg seems like a foreign occurrence. We should be collecting an egg once a day from here on out, and as soon as the other chickens are old enough we will be collecting up to 4 a day.

Poached Eggs

2-4 Fresh Eggs (the fresher the better, but does not necessarily need to be from your backyard)

1-2 tsp of vinegar

Over medium heat bring 2 to 3 inches of water to a boil/simmer in a skillet. Pour in vinegar, 1 tsp per cup of water.

crack single egg into liquid measuring cup, be careful not to break the yolk. Pour egg carefully into water. Repeat with the rest of the eggs.

Turn off heat and cover. Wait patiently until the yolk has set to your desired hardness.

J. likes the yolk to be mostly set, but still a bit runny. 7 minutes or so.

Sprinkle salt and pepper over top
