Recipe I think that any basic bread recipe should work. Here's a recipe that will produce moist & chewy bagels. Hope you like it!

6.5 cups flour
3 cups warm water
1.5 T salt
1.5 T yeast

Mix until all flour is incorporated; dough will be moist. No need to knead. Let rise 1.5-2 hours. Before taking small piece of dough, dust it lightly with flour (it will be very sticky). Use more flour if necessary to keep it from sticking to your hands. Shape into circle, as shown in the video. Let rise approx.30 min. While rising, boil water and add 1/4 C sugar and 1 tsp baking soda. Gently drop bagels into water one at a time and let simmer for 2 minutes; flip and simmer for another minute.

Remove & place on towel dusted with flour. Sprinkle with sesame seeds & bake at 450F for around 20 minutes. Reply

Recipte Haha, no, David, it wouldn't hurt to list ingredients etc. ;-)

We have been considering including a pdf recipe with each episode of the Queens Cuisines, and your feedback is appreciated. Reply

Recipe Would it hurt to list the ingredients and the quantities of each? And maybe it would be nice to give the temp and baking time? After 30 minutes in the AZ sun I begin to boil...so how long should I boil the bagels? Reply
