Chef's notes

I think 12 minutes is too long. Whilst I haven't made the Alboronía yet, I have tried using this method for poaching eggs. It works beautifully, but the yolk was too hard for my liking. I used a large egg, straight from the fridge, so if you are using smaller eggs the time will need to be reduce considerably. I tried it again this morning with same sized and reduced the cooking to 9 minutes 30 seconds and this time the yolk was slightly runny. As I like my yolks to be very runny (but with a firm white) next time I will reduce by 1 further minute to 8 minutes 30 seconds.
