Homemade bagels

How's about these? My first attempt at bagels!



I don't know why I have never tried to make bagels before, they look difficult but at the end of the day they are just rolls with holes. In my total ignorance I have only recently discovered that bagels are boiled first which I think is what inspired me to make them. They were super easy to do although the bit in the recipe about making a hole with a wooden spoon then twirling them round it to get the hole size was a bit of a faff. You can shape them easier with your fingers.

I was quite chuffed with these and didn't deviate too much from the recipe but think there is room for improvement and when I come up with a refined version I shall post it up here.



Happy Bagel Friday everyone!
