Bagels are a bread product that originated in the Jewish communities in Poland.  They are made quite simply:  Yeast dough is formed in a circle, put in boiling water for a short time, then baked.  Some modern day bagels are steamed instead of boiled, but the result is mostly the same.  Crisp on the outside, and dense and doughy on the inside.  Have you tried ours yet?  Make a $17 purchase this week at Fresh Madison Market and you can enjoy a bagel on us!
