I've recently moved to a new place and my poached eggs now come out smelling weird! It's a sort of smell like if you haven't air dried your clothes properly, ugh its horrible! It's much worse if I catch a bit of the boiled water onto the english muffin, so I have a feeling it might be the water itself (ew!)
I've tried all the below but still have this problem:
* Washing all cutlery by hand to rule out the dishwasher
* Descaling the kettle to rule that out (I add the boiling water to the pan)
* Using super fresh eggs and english muffins (i.e. cooking it the same day to rule out the fridge)
* Adding white vinegar to the boiling water, no difference, still smells funny!
It's worth noting it doesn't taste off, but smells a little funky!
Could there be something wrong with our water supply? I don't know what else it could be.. Other food I make is fine, like a curry, which probably masks whatever it is. But its very noticeable with poached eggs.
Any help really appreciated
