Recently, thanks to Nicole, I've started making bagels. I was asked on twitter to do a photo blog detailing the process. So my kitchen is tiny and crowded, my camera sucks and this is only my third batch so I'm by no means perfect. So you've been warned... let's do this.
This is the recipe I follow, I tried to give you a picture of each step so you could see the process. Make Bagels!
Ok get all of your ingredients together according to directions. I'm using my fabulous Kitchen Aid, obviously.
Mix your dough
Divide your dough into 8 equalish pieces, let rest for 10-20 min
Roll each dough ball into a snake longer than the width of your two hands.
Loop your snake around your hand
Use your palm to seal your loop ends together
You made a dough circle!
A whole batch of almost bagels, yay.
After a 20 min rest
Time to boil
Boil for about a minute, flip and repeat for second side.
Dry before transferring to baking tray
Bake according to directions... Ta Da
