I can’t believe it, I worked with yeast and they actually turned out. Yay! I found this recipe,http://makemethod.vox.com/library/post/homemade-bagels.html and decided to give it a go, afterall Lachlan and I just love bagels. Since they are at least $1 each, I thought that I can’t do any worse. They are very simple to make, just time consuming (in the sense that you can’t whip them up five minutes before you step out of the door). I don’t have a mixer, but mixing it with your wooden spoon works just as well (and builds up a little muscle).Here they are ready to be cooked in water briefly (that was cool to watch).Ok, so they look a little like snails, but next time they will look more rounded (don’t roll out a sausage shape and join it, it doesn’t work). Instead roll out a ball and use something to cut out the centre. Also my baking paper got stuck on the bottom (don’t tell anyone, they didn’t notice), of course I did my best to peel it off, but I’m not too sure that I got all of it off. Hee hee, my family ate them too quickly to notice. By the way, they were yum!
Oh, and I tidied up my very full pantry. I haven’t had it this full in a long time, I will consider this a blessing. Now Jared should be able to find the Peanut Butter when he wants it 😀I also started on a couple of flowers to go toward my handmade swap, oh, and a wrist pin cushion.
