[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #00adef;”] Y[/dropcap]ou know what I used to be afraid of?
Yes putting an egg or two in a pot of boiling water used to really intimidate me.
Because I’d tried it once and it had ended up with a mass of whispy egg whites all through the saucepan and a golf-ball hard naked egg yolk. Ugh!
So for years I just ordered poached eggs when ever I was out for breakfast.
And didn’t dare try them again at home.
Until I started experimenting with eating Paleo. Which meant eggs for breakfast every day.
So after weeks of getting bored with my eggs scrambled or fried, I decided it was time to master the poached egg.
This time I was prepared for failure. And I did lots of research which meant I learned important tips like adding vinegar to the cooking water. And the biggest game changer… using the freshest eggs possible.
After a few days, my egg poaching was pretty decent.
And after all these years, it’s absolutely amazing. Even if I do say so myself ;)
How to Be Absolutely Amazing at Cooking Anything
1. Do your research.
Find a source you trust and pick the simplest method.
If possible every day. Or at least once a week. Until you’re the master.
It really is that simple.
