    Crack eggs into a small bowl. Fill a large pot with water and place on medium-high heat. When the water is just simmering, add vinegar. Gently slide the eggs one by one into the water. Reduce heat to low, making sure the water isn’t boiling. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the whites are set and yolks are runny. Using a slotted spoon, remove the poached eggs from the water and place them on a plate. Season lightly with salt.
