Make better boiled or poached eggs

Vinegar does marvelous things for eggs. Here are the two most useful “egg-samples”:

  • When you are making hard-boiled eggs, adding 2 tablespoons distilled vinegar for every quart (liter) of water will keep the eggs from cracking and make them easier to shell.
  • When you are poaching eggs, adding a couple of tablespoons of vinegar to the water will keep your eggs in tight shape by preventing the egg whites from spreading.
