                                  Bagels
Recipe By     : Vicki Caparulo
Serving Size  : 12   Preparation Time :0:00
Categories    : Breads - Yeast                   Volume 1, Oct. '98
  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   2      cups          warm water
   1 1/2  teaspoons     yeast -- (Rapid Rise)
   2      tablespoons   barley malt extract
   1      tablespoon    barley malt extract
   1      tablespoon    vegetable oil
   6      cups          flour
   1      tablespoon    salt
In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, combine the warm water and 2 tbsp.
barley malt extract.  Add the yeast and stir to dissolve.  Add the oil, 2 
cups of flour and salt and, with the paddle attachment, blend together 
well.  Continue adding flour 1/4 cup at a time.  Beat at the lowest speed 
until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  Remove and scrape 
down the paddle, insert the dough hook and knead at low speed until the 
dough is smooth and elastic.  Add the flour cautiously, the dough should 
be stiff, but too much flour will cause the bagels to be tough.  The 
kneading will take 5 or 6 minutes.
Transfer the dough to a floured board and knead for a minute or two.  Form 
the dough into a ball, place in a large oiled bowl, turning to coat.  
Cover with plastic wrap (I use a plastic bucket with a cover which
works great).  Let dough fully rise until an impression made with your
finger remains.
Preheat the oven to 450.  Fill a large saucepan with 4 qts. water, add the
remaining tbsp. barley malt, bring to a gentle boil.
Punch the dough down, remove it from the bowl (or bucket) and cut into 
thirds. Roll each piece into a rope.  Cut each rope into four equal pieces 
and shape into balls.  Roll the first ball into a rope about 2" larger 
than the width of your hand.  Wrap the rope around your fingers to form 
a ring,  with the ends overlapping about 1 1/2 inch.  Seal ends by rolling 
with your palms on a work surface.  Evenly space the bagels on a piece of 
parchment paper, cover and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
When ready, drop two or three of the bagels at a time into the boiling 
water and allow them to rise to the surface.  Cook for no longer than two
minutes, turning once (I have experimented with this and find that it 
makes a better bagel to allow them to cook only 30 seconds - that makes 
the final spring happen in the oven, and not in the water - cookbooks vary
on this and I have tried all times).  Using a skimmer or slotted spoon,  
carefully lift each bagel out of the water, drain momentarily and turn 
over in a dish of prepared topping.  Evenly space the bagels on parchment
paper.  Bake bagels until browned, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Toppings: Toasted sesame seeds, minced dried onion, minced dried garlic, 
poppy seeds, caraway seeds or pretzel salt.
Note:  I have used reconstituted dried onions in the batter for onion 
bagels, as well as jalapeno flakes, also used rye flour, pumpernickel, etc.
for various types of bagels.  Barley Malt extract can be found in health 
food stores.

Recipe By     : 
Serving Size  : 1    Preparation Time :0:00
Categories    : Breads - Yeast                   Volume 1, Oct. '98
  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   2      pkgs          dry yeast
   2      cups          warm water(about 110')
   3      Tbl           sugar
   3      tsp           ns salt
   5 1/2  cups          all purpose flour -- (5 1/2 to 6)
   1      tbl           sugar in 3 quarts water
                        cornmeal
   1                    egg yolk beaten with 1 tbl water
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.  Stir in sugar and salt;
gradually stir in 4 cups of the flour.  Beat well to make a smooth batter.
Mix in 1 1/4 cups more flour to make a smooth dough.
Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead until smooth and satiny [10 
to 20 min] adding flour as needed to prevent sticking--dough should be
firmer than most other yeast breads.  Place dough in a greased bowl, turn
over to grease top.  Cover and let rise in a warn place until doubled 
(about 40 min).
Punch down; knead briefly on a lightly floured board to release air, then
divide into 18 equal pieces.  Form each piece into a smooth ball by gently
kneading.  Holding ball with both hands, poke your thumbs thru the center.
With one thumb in the hole, work around the perimeter, shaping bagel like a
doughnut 2 1/2 to 3 inches across.  Place shaped bagels on a lightly 
floured board, cover lightly and let stand in a warm place for twenty 
minutes.
Bring sugar-water mixture to boiling in a 4 or 5 quart pan; adjust heat to
keep it boiling gently.  Lightly grease 2 baking sheets (at least 15x12
inches) and sprinkle with corn meal.  With a slotted spatula, lift one 
bagel at a time and lower into water; boil 5 or 6 at a time, turning often,
for 5 minutes.  Lift out of pan, drain briefly on a towel, and place on
baking sheet.
Brush bagels with egg yolk mixture.  Bake in a preheated 400' oven for 25 
to 30 minutes or until well browned and crusty.  Let cool on a rack.
Options:  Add 1/2 cup instant toasted onion to yeast to yeast mixture along
with sugar and salt. Or sprinkle 1/2 tsp poppy seeds or sesame seeds or 1/4
tsp coarse salt (kosher) on each glazed bagel before baking.

                Volume 1, Oct. '98
  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   2      cups          warm water
   2      Tablespoons   turbinado sugar
   2      Tablespoons   yeast
   6      cups          unbleached white flour
   1      Tablespoon    salad oil for oiling bowl
It's not the salt that's the secret in these crusty rolls; it's the
sugar.  Barbados produces some of the most sought after sugar in the world.
If you are lucky enough to live in one of the countries that import this 
delightful, large-grained product [primarily England and Canada], 
dd it to your special staples list. A good substitute is turbinado 
ugar found in health food and specialty stores.
Dissolve sugar in warm water in a very large bowl. Sprinkle the yeast 
on top and stir briefly to wet granules. Let sit for 5 minutes or 
until foamy. Add 3 cups of flour and stir to form stiff dough. Cover 
sponge with a lid and place in a warm area for 30 minutes. The sponge will 
expand greatly. Stir down the sponge, add 2 more cups of flour and 
mix well.
Sprinkle the last cup of flour on your kneading surface, empty the 
dough onto the surface and knead in the last cup of flour. Continue 
to knead for 3 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic. 
lace the dough in an oiled bowl, turning it over to coat all 
surfaces. Cover, place in a warm area and let rise 30 minutes or 
until doubled. Divide dough into 12 even portions . Roll into balls 
and place on oiled baking sheet leaving 2 inches between rolls. 
Score the center of each roll with a sharp knife.
Use one cut or make a star pattern by making perpendicular cuts. Brush 
each roll with water, let rise for 10 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 
35 minutes or until rolls are light brown. Makes 12 large rolls.

Johanne's Foolproof Recipes presents real, honest, Jewish (Lower East  
Side) Purist's Bagels.
In the United States, most  people's idea of a bagel seems to be of a 
vaguely squishy unsweetened doughnut, possibly with some sort of godawful 
flavoring mixed into it,  generally purchased in lots of  six in some 
supermarket... possibly even frozen.  These are not those bagels. These 
bagels are the genuine article.  These are the bagels that have sustained 
generations of Eastern European Jewish peasants, the bagels that babies 
can teethe upon (folk wisdom has it that the hard, chewy crust encourages 
strong teeth), the bagels about which writer and humorist Alice Kahn has 
so aptly written that bagels are "Jewish courage."
This recipe makes approximately fifteen large bagels.  The bagels are  
made without eggs, milk or any type of shortening or oil, which makes 
them  pareve according to Kosher law.  These bagels are plain, but I 
will provide suggestions as to how you may customize them to your 
tastes while retaining their Pristine and Ineffable Nature.  May you 
bake them and eat them in good health.
HOW YOU DO IT:
First, pour three cups of hot water into the mixing bowl.  The water 
should be hot, but not so hot that you can't bear to put your fingers 
in it for several seconds at a time.  Add the sugar or honey and stir 
it with your fingers (a good way to make sure the water is not too hot) 
or with a wire whisk to dissolve. Sprinkle the yeast over the surface 
of the water, and stir to dissolve.
Wait about ten minutes for the yeast to begin to revive and grow.  This 
is known as "proofing" the yeast, which simply means you're checking to 
make sure your yeast is viable.  Skipping this step could result in your 
trying to make bagels with dead yeast, which is banned under the terms 
of the Geneva Convention.  You will know that the yeast is okay if it 
begins to foam and exude a sweetish, slightly beery smell.
At this point, add about three cups of flour as well as the 2 tsp
of salt to the water and yeast and begin mixing it in. 
When you have incorporated the first three cups of flour, the dough 
should begin to become thickish.  Add more flour, a half-cup or so at 
a time, and mix each addition thoroughly before adding more flour. As 
the dough gets thicker, add less and less flour at a time.  Soon you 
will begin to knead it by hand (if you're using your hands to mix the 
dough in the first place, this  segue is hardly noticeable).  If you have 
a big enough  and shallow enough bowl, use it as the kneading bowl, 
otherwise use that clean,  dry, flat counter top or tabletop mentioned in 
the "Equipment" list above.  Sprinkle your work surface or bowl with a 
handful of flour, put your dough on top, and start kneading.  Add bits of 
flour if necessary to keep the dough from sticking (to your hands, to the 
bowl or counter top, etc....).  Soon you should have a nice stiff dough.  
It will be quite elastic, but heavy and stiffer than a normal bread dough.  
Do not make it too dry, however....it should still give easily and 
stretch easily without tearing.
Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, and cover with one of your clean 
kitchen towels, dampened somewhat by getting it wet and then wringing it 
out thoroughly.  If you swish the dough around in the bowl, you can get
the whole ball of dough covered with a very thin film of oil, which will 
keep it from drying out.
Place the bowl with the dough in it in a dry, warm (but not hot) place, 
free from drafts. Allow it to rise until doubled in volume.
While the dough is rising, fill your stockpot with about a gallon of water 
and set it on the fore to boil. When it reaches a boil, add the malt syrup 
or sugar and reduce the heat so that the water just barely simmers; the 
surface of the water should hardly move.
Once the dough has risen, turn it onto your work surface, punch it down, 
and divide immediately into as many hunks as you want to make bagels.
For this recipe, you will probably end up with about 15 bagels, so you 
will divide the dough into 15 roughly even-sized hunks.  Begin forming 
the bagels.  There are two schools of thought on this.  One method of 
bagel formation involves shaping the dough into a rough sphere, then 
poking a hole through the middle with a finger and then pulling at the 
dough around the hole to make the bagel.  This is the hole-centric 
method.  The dough-centric method involves making a long cylindrical
"snake" of dough and wrapping it around your hand into a loop and 
mashing the ends together.
DO NOT, however, give in to the temptation of using a doughnut or 
cookie cutter to shape your bagels. This will push them out of the 
realm of Jewish Bagel Authenticity and give them a distinctly 
Protestant air.  The bagels will not be perfectly shaped.
Begin to preheat the oven to 400 degrees Farenheit.  Once the bagels 
are formed, let them sit for about 10 minutes.  They will begin to 
rise slightly.  Ideally, they will rise by about one-fourth volume... 
a technique called "half-proofing" the dough. At the end of the half-
proofing, drop the bagels into the simmering water one by one. You don't 
want to crowd them, and so there should only be two or three bagels 
simmering at any given time.  The bagels should sink first, then 
gracefully float to the top of the simmering water.  If they float, it's 
not a big deal, but it does mean that you'll have a somewhat more bready 
(and less bagely) texture.  Let the bagel simmer for about three minutes,
then turn them over with a skimmer or a slotted spoon. Simmer another 
three minutes, and then lift the bagels out of the water and set them on 
a clean kitchen towel that has been spread on the counter top for this 
purpose.  The bagels should be pretty and shiny, thanks to the malt syrup 
or sugar in the boiling water.
Once all the bagels have been boiled, prepare your baking sheets by 
sprinkling them with cornmeal.  Then arrange the bagels on the prepared 
baking sheets and put them in the oven.  Let them bake for about 25 
minutes, then remove from the oven, turn them over and put them back in 
the oven to finish baking for about ten minutes more.  This will help 
to prevent flat-bottomed bagels.
Remove from the oven and cool on wire racks, or on dry clean towels.  Do 
not attempt to cut them until they are cool...hot bagels slice abominably 
and you'll end up with a wadded mass of bagel pulp.
Serve with good cream cheese.
TO CUSTOMIZE BAGELS: After boiling but before baking, brush the bagels with 
a wash made of 1 egg white and 3 tablespoons ice water beaten together.  
Sprinkle with the topping of your choice: poppy, sesame,or caraway seeds, 
toasted onion or raw garlic bits, salt or whatever you like.  Just remember 
that bagels are essentially a savory baked good, not a sweet one, and so 
things like fruit and sweet spices are really rather
out of place.
