 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       tb           Honey
    1       pk           Regular long-acting yeast
    1       t            Salt
    1       ea           Large pot of boiling water
    1       tb           Sugar
    1       ea           Eggwash
    1 1/2   c            Water, 110 deg f.
    5       c            Whole wheat flour
 
   Dissolve honey in the water.  Add the yeast and proof.
   Mix in salt and flour.  Knead until gluten is formed.
   Place dough in covered bowl and let rise until almost
   doubled in bulk.  Punch down dough and let rest five
   minutes. Now the fun begins ! Divide the dough into
   16-32 balls. Roll ball until smooth.  Poke your index
   finger through the dough’s pudgy middle and twirl
   around your finger until the hole is ~ 1 1/2 across.
   Place formed bagel on a cookie sheet and let rise
   while you form the remaining bagels. Add the 1 T sugar
   to the kettle of simmering water.  Gently lower the
   bagel and turn, turn, turn, for ~ 5 minutes.  Simmer
   each bagel until it is fully cooked (otherwise bagel
   will “fall”).  Place poached bagels on cookie sheet.
   Brush bagels with eggwash. Bake at ~375 degrees for
   10-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
