Attempted making bagels again today. They were just as delicious but a more recognisable bagel shape this time. The things I did differently:
- Allowed my yeast longer to react with the water and fully start working
- Mix the salt in with the flour before adding the yeast and other ingredients.
- Longer proving times
- Shaped the bagels into rings rather than bagel shapes before the 2nd prove and boil!
And there we are! Second time lucky!
And yes Debbie, I will bring you one tomorrow! X Bo
