Sister agreed that a joint venture for bagels at Farmer's Market is a possibility, using her kitchen which is both larger and less cluttered. I'll have to see how good her oven is on temperature, but an hour with a thermometer can tell me if it's accurate and even enough. The big plus is that there is more room, a big table to work on, and no Thing 1 and Thing 2 to cause problems while I work. More research is needed, today's is the dough proofed overnight in the fridge. They smell great right now, 12 minutes until completion. |
I need some input. What is in your favorite bagel? My current favorite (besides plain) is garlic and onion. I need some varieties to start experimenting with.
I might also bring one or two of the giant bagels to see how they sell.
The cinnamon ones were delicious, though the ones you made last month could've used more cinnamon and sugar. ^^
Are you wanting new ideas or comments on your current recipes? I haven't had the chance to try what you have made, bagel wise. I will say that I am rather fond of blueberry or french toast bagels, myself.
Only a handful of people have actually had my bagels, right now I'm looking for a list of flavors so I can pick which ones I want to experiment with so I'm not sitting at a table with just one or two flavors of bagels (although I'd probably stick with a half dozen flavors max).
Neat! I am so excited for you! I haven't been to the Farmers Mkt in YEARS, guess this means I need to wander up there again, huh?
I usually get blueberry or asiago when getting a bagel.
Asiago from Paneras = Heaven.
I like 7 grain or onion. Alan likes egg. Asagio cheese is also yummy.
The local bagel place here in town will make up a batch of colored bagels (food coloring) for special events - red for valentines day, green for st. patricks day etc. They even made blue ones for the NY Giants superbowl game!
Dutch apple for sweet, onion for savory.
Cinnamon apple or cinnamon raisin for sweet...mmm...now I want a bagel.
You know...I don't think I've ever met a bagel I didn't like.
And if I lived there, I would totally buy a giant bagel.
for me: onion, asiago, pumpernickle, or berry
for pooch: everything - grains, onion, garlic
I would just like to say that your LJ always makes me hungry! Oh, and I'm a big "everything" bagel fan. If I can't get one of those, I'll usually just go for plain.
Pumpkin. Cranberry. Asiago. Other kinds of cheese? I.e., parmesan, romano etc.? Matt suggests black olive and parmesan, which I think sounds gross, but that's because I hate olives.
You shouldn't make pumpkin bagels just because I say so. On the other hand, if you choose to experiment with them, I can almost guarantee that I will buy them. >:D
Ooo! Lemon? Raspberry? Orange? I tend to like savory bagels over sweet, and don't really care for blueberry or cinnamon or raisin bagels, but I love cranberries for the tartness. Wonder how an orange-y bagel with orange zest on the top would be like. Yum yum.
I like poppyseed or sesame, although sometimes I get the everything (aka kitchen sink) bagel.
