How to Poach an Egg

Part of a continuing "How To..." series? Nope, it's just a weird coincidence that my last two posts were instructional (I swear!), and actually more evidence that I was in Maine this weekend than anything else. Anyway, here's a video from the Kitchn on how to poach an egg:


I found the video interesting mainly because I... ahem... have never poached an egg before. In part this is due to the fact that I'm a reformed picky eater who has been somewhat slow in embracing all forms of egg-i-ness... but it's also because I didn't know how to do it and had always heard it was hard (doesn't seem that hard in the video). But Sam Sifton told me I need to know how to do it, and who am I to argue with Sam Sifton? Next up? Fried eggs maybe?
