But the BBA book has a bagel recipe in it that does not involve lye and still the bagels are AMAZING. Everyone I gave them to absolutely fell out telling me how good they were.
Again, I did this on November 23 and was just late posting it. The holidays always interfere with blogging for me both here and on my beekeeping blog.
Making bagels was incredibly time-consuming but at the same time, so much fun. Every recipe in the book takes more time than any other bread recipe, but every time it is worth it.
