[MUSIC] I'm Justin Chapple from Food and Wine's Test Kitchen. Join me as I demonstrate Mad Genius Tips. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO] This tip involves just a simple household ingredient. Known as white distilled vinegar. The trick to this is you're gonna actually want to soak your eggs in the vinegar. And it's gonna help that egg white hold its shape when you add it to water. These have been soaking for about five minutes. We're gonna go ahead and crack our egg into a small bowl. You just want to make sure you don't break the egg yolk. Then you're gonna have to start all over again. And we have here a deep. Skillet of barely simmering water, and you're going to slide the egg right into the boiling water just like that. As you can see, the egg is already holding its shape. At this point, I'm going to take my handy dandy slotted spoon to kind of move the egg around the pan and help it cook nice and even. This is going to take really just four minutes. When it's finally all said and done and it's all poached up, you're going to want to have a nice Just firm egg white, with a super, super soft yolk. Because of course, isn't that the prize? [MUSIC] And, I think we might be just about ready. You can see that the white is actually quite firm. And that my yolk is still nice and soft. [MUSIC] And now, we're going to enjoy the fruits of our labor. Wow! Look at that. A golden, delicious, poached egg. The yolk is so creamy and the egg white is perfectly cooked. It's incredible.
