Can I poach an egg using apple cider vinegar instead of regular or will this make the egg taste funny?

I stopped using vinegar and now am adding baking soda to the water.

I've done it with apple cider vinegar and it was fine - barely noticeable. But I do prefer distilled white vinegar when I have it around.

Skip the vinegar. Egg will poach fine without it.

You don't have to use any vinegar

For dosing the boiling water to make the poached eggs form more neatly I use whatever vinegar I have on hand.
Rarely leaves a taste but if yes it is usually faint, pleasant and doesn't conflict with other flavors.
