Bagels Turned Out OK

Even with the boiling, we did not get a gloss on the Bagels tonight.

It wasn't quite as chewy as I would have liked on the inside, and the crust was decidedly non-glossy.

I think that both may have been an artifact of my using "White Whole Wheat" flour, because I could not find a white flour without malted barley flour, and Sharon* is violently allergic to both malt and barley.

Also, I found the flavor just a bit too yeasty.

The wife and kids loved them though.

I will repeat that this was literally the first time that I have ever made bread, so I cannot complain.

*Love of my life, light of the cosmos, she who must be obeyed, my wife.
