I was talking to a friend, that I give eggs to. and she said - when poaching the eggs the white separates completely from the yolk.
the white has no firmness to it. It just is very thin & liquid like.

has anyone got any ideas why this is.

Old eggs? Or boiling the water too rapidly?

It might be breed related too, I have found that my Wyandotte eggs are perfect for poaching, the whites are much firmer and very little watery white. It's possible that for whatever reason, some breeds produce eggs with very runny, loose whites?

Have you noticed the same thing with your eggs? Could it be how they are being stored if only your friend is having the problem?

It can't hurt if she poaches the eggs in little clingwrap pouches to contain the white when cooking.

Better here than a new thread. Sort of a new slant on how to cook them. Whole new world. Have any of the egg- cooking people here tried the small Kmart Pie Maker. $29, - it cooks the best poached or fried eggs I have seen/eaten.

The pie maker cooks eggs perfectly without water or oil. Alone or on toast which it toasts at the same time. Or on a slice of slightly pre-cooked bacon, topped (or not) with a slice or two of tomato. Great number of variations, minimum clean-up afterwards compared to 'traditional' stove top cooking. Quicker, easier.

No photos yet, will work on that this week. Meantime if anyone would like to see some verification, find the Kmart Pie Maker group on fb - loads of photos of egg-cooking methods - including quiches, egg-custard tarts or pies, zucchini slices, the whole range. It is a new fad in a sense, lots of enthusiasm, Kmart sold out of pie makers when it hit. Can be used as a strong selling point for those of us selling eggs to a small niche market that we actually talk to now and then. Have other forum members seen this trend, have any thoughts on it??
