Posted in reply to a message board request. This is a recipe for plain, "NYC style", water bagels. IMHO, this recipe makes a very good bagel. I've had this recipe for some 40+ years, and I'm clueless as to where/who I originally got it from. Prep time includes the rising time. Note: The natural minerals in your local tap water will make a difference in the end product.
