What is poaching?

Poaching uses a small amount of water that has been flavoured with savoury ingredients or sugar and spices, in which the ingredient being  poached is submerged in the poaching liquid and cooked very slowly. Food cooked this way stays beautifully moist. The versatile cooking method allows you can poach an array of foods such as eggs, meat, fish and fruit.
