    3       tb           SUGAR
    1       tb           SALT
      1/2   ts           BLACK PEPPER
    1       tb           TABASCO PEPPER SAUCE
    4       tb           JALAPENO PEPPER, FRESH
                         -AND FINELY CHOPPED
    4       c            FLOUR, ALL-PURPOSE
    1       ga           WATER
 
   stir yeast into 1 1/2 cups warm water in large bowl;
   let stand until bubbly, about 5 minutes.  stir in
   sugar, salt, pepper, tabasco, 3 tablespoons jalapeno,
   and enough flour to make a soft dough. knead dough on
   lightly floured board until smooth and elastic, adding
   remaining flour as necessary.
   let dough stand in warm place 15 minutes.  punch down
   dough; roll on lightly floured board into a rectangle
   13 x 4 inches, about 1 inch thick. cut dough into 18
   strips with floured knife.  roll each strip gently to
   form rope 1/2 inch thick.  moisten ends of rope and
   press together to form bagels.  place bagels on
   floured cookie sheets.  let stand covered 20 minutes.
   heat one gallon of water to boiling in large stock
   pot.  reduce heat to medium.  place 3 to 4 bagels in
   stock pot.  simmer uncovered 7 minutes (no longer).
   drain on towel.  repeat with remaining bagels. heat
   oven to 375 degrees.  brush bagels with beaten egg,
   sprinkle with remaining jalapeno pepper.  bake bagels
   on ungreased cookie sheet until golden, 30 to 35
   minutes.  cool on wire rack. serve with cold sliced
   roast beef or chicken.
