  • Poached

    You probably know that the older eggs are, the more they will spread out when cracked open in a pan.

    Do you also know that you can add several drops of vinegar to the water when poaching eggs? The acid of the vinegar will help the proteins of the eggs to coagulate. So the egg whites will not spread as much.

  • Meringue

    To make fluffy meringue that is perfect every time, add a teaspoon of white vinegar for every three egg whites used.
