Re: Basically it's the weekend!

BAGEL RECIPE

UTENSILS: LARGE BOWL
WOODEN SPOON FOR MIXING
MEASURING SPOONS
MEASURING CUPS
4 QUART (OR LARGER) KETTLE
SLOTTED SPOON OR LADLE
TOWEL FOR DRAINING
BAKING SHEET(S)
HOT PADS

INGREDIENTS: 2 CUPS WARM WATER
2 TBS. HONEY
2 TBS. YEAST
1 TBS. SALT
5+ CUPS BREAD FLOUR

EXTRAS: -ADDITIONAL CUP OF FLOUR FOR
KNEADING
-TWO TO THREE QUARTS WATER FOR
BOILING IN KETTLE
-1 TBS CORN SYRUP FOR BATH
-OIL AND CORN MEAL OR PARCHMENT FOR
BAKING SHEET
-RACK FOR COOLING


In the large bowl mix the water, honey and yeast. To proof yeast wait 3-4 minutes for milky foam to form. Stir in salt and two cups of flour. Mix well. Add remainder of flour in 1/2 cup measures. Stir briskly until dough is stringy, and continue until it is stiff and hard to stir in the bowl.

Smooth a small measure of flour on work surface and turn out dough for hand kneading. Knead while adding flour, until a smooth stiff dough is formed. Knead some more. Kneading may take 10 minutes or more. Set dough aside. Take a break and put the kettle and water on to boil. Prepare any toppings and the baking sheet.


***The dough should raise for at least 20 minutes even if instant yeast is used. The dough will continue to raise while the bagels are formed. Thirty to forty minutes of raising is fine. The dough may be left for over an hour if need be. Just punch it down. The dough may also be placed in the bowl in the refrigerator for several hours to be used later or left overnight for boiling and baking the next morning.

***If bagels are to be made containing minced fresh onion, grated cheese or chopped sun-dried tomatoes for example, those ingredients would be added to portions of the dough at this point….NOTE: minced onions add moisture back to the dough so more flour will have to be added to onion bagels before forming.


Divide the dough into 4 oz. round portions…about the size of a tangerine or large plum. Smooth top of each ball. This recipe should produce ten to twelve bagels.

One at a time, and using thumb and middle finger, squeeze a hole through the middle of each ball. Gently pull into a bagel circle trying to keep the shape uniform. Pull until the hole is two-three inches across. When three or four bagels are formed, place CAREFULLY in boiling water.

When the water comes to a boil add the corn syrup to the kettle and place a towel next to the stove for draining the bagels. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Boil 3-4 bagels at a time for 30 seconds and then turn using the slotted spoon and boil for another 30 seconds.

Take bagels from water with spoon and place on towel. Boil more bagels.
Transfer drained bagels to baking sheet.

***At this point an egg wash or milk can be brushed on and toppings such as sesame seed, poppy seed, garlic powder, etc. can be added. The damp bagels may be dipped in a toppings on a plate and then set on the baking sheet.

****At this point bagels can be frozen for future baking. Just put the whole baking sheet in the freezer and, when frozen hard, remove from sheet and place in plastic bags. To bake it is best to place the frozen bagels on the baking sheet with parchment or corn meal and let thaw to room temperature. Then place in 400 degree oven. The bagels may be placed frozen on the sheet and baked immediately but they will not raise as nicely.

When baking sheet is full place in oven until bagels are nicely browned, about 20-30 minutes. Take bagels from oven and cool on a rack before cutting.

I'm getting really worried about his front teeth. They weren't like this before when he still had his schnuller. He hasn't banged then on anything either.

I think so too. I'm worried...it's almost like he'd have been better off if he'd been allowed to keep his schnuller. yk.

I'm busy setting up appointments for all of us to get checked over. Sight tests for all of us, Hearing test for Fynn, Dentist is one I'd have forgotten about but I will set that up for all of us too.
