1. In a medium size pot, add the water and salt.  (If the pot is more than ½ full of water, switch for a larger pot). Bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat so the water is still simmering.  Add the vinegar.

2. Using a wooden spoon, stir the water vigorously in a circular motion in one direction.

3. Quickly, while the water is still rapidly moving, break open one egg and drop it into the center of the well created by the swirling water.

4. Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring when needed.

5. Remove with a slotted spoon.

6. Repeat for additional eggs.


Notes:  Poaching eggs is not difficult, but you may find that a little bit of practice pays off. If your first attempt is with company, be prepared or a few giggles. You can adjust the cooking time slightly based on how well cooked you like your eggs. This recipe can be used for several eggs, not just two (though it is advisable to only cook one at a time).
