What do you need to know about our New York bagels? Where to start… Here are all the things you need to know to make your bagel eating adventure a success.
First, plan ahead. Order your bagel box close enough to your anticipated chow down that they will arrive fresh and ready for you to enjoy and not have to sit in the box for days.
Eating bagels as soon as possible is the mantra of bagel enjoyment., There is nothing like biting into a bagel that is fresh and chewy, with a crust that is just barely crisp and a texture that is ideal for slicing, spreading, and toasting.
Buy enough bagels to share. If you don’t, you may come I to find your bagel box has been raid and there are only crumbs left for your planned bagel bites pizza creation that was meant to accompany your Game of Thrones binge.
If you have leftover bagels (crazy notion, right?) you’ll need to store them sealed tightly in a plastic bag – preferably with all of the air sucked out. You can keep them on the counter in a cool climate – refrigeration is not really recommended, as it causes bagels to go stale more quickly.
If you are going to keep bagels longer than a day after they arrive, stick them in the freezer. Slice them first, and wrap them with halves all facing the same way and a pie of waxed paper between them.
Reheat bagels carefully – for best result, allow to that and stick in the toaster, or wrap in foil and heat in the oven if you prefer a softer bagel. Moisten with water if you choose to heat them unwrapped, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees before heating for ten minutes on the middle rack.
Don’t microwave bagels if you can help it, it makes them tough and unappetizing. If you still have leftover bagels, you can always cut them into chunks, brush with melted butter, and bake until crisp for homemade croutons perfect for soup.
