Next challenge - bagel

Got my starters, got a few nice loaves of bread - next thing I want to try is sourdough bagels.

Can you share your recipes, please

 

Thank you

Hi Lily,

Here are a couple of bagel recipes that have been posted recently -- you've probably seen them already, but in case not:

http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/3291/first-clear-flour-bagels

http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/2647/whole-wheat-sourdough-bagels 

http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/3303/sourdough-bagels

Both use dry yeast in addition to the sourdough.

One word of warning: if you haven't made bagels before, I suggest staritng with a small batch and see how your mixer handles it. The dough is very stiff and puts a lot of stress on a mixer.

Have fun!
