Happy New Year!
Do you have a good recipe for Bagels? I just made a batch which didn't rise and are doughy.
Something is wrong with this recipe
Hopefully you have a better one
There is one recipe below and others on these sites:
King Arthur Flour
New York Style bagels
4-5 c. flour
1 pkg. active dry yeast
2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. hot water (120-130 degrees)
2 tbsp. honey or sugar
1 egg white
1 tsp. water
Dehydrated garlic or onion, optional
Sesame, poppy or caraway seeds, optional
1. Combine 1 cup flour, yeast and salt in bowl.
2. Stir in hot water and honey. Beat until smooth, about 3 minutes.
Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
3. Turn out onto floured surface. Continue to work in flour until dough
is stiff enough to knead. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes).
4. Cover with bowl and let rest 15 minutes.
5. Divide into 12 equal parts. Shape into flattened ball. With thumb and forefinger,
poke hole in center. Stretch and rotate until hole is 1-2 inches. Cover and let rise 20 minutes.
6. Boil water in large shallow pan about 2 inches deep. Reduce heat. Simmer a few bagels at a time
7 minutes. Remove from pan, drain on a towel about 5 minutes. Place on baking sheet, brush
with mixture of egg white and water. Sprinkle with garlic, dehydrated onion, sesame seeds,
poppy seed or caraway seeds as desired.
7. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until done.

Subject: Van de Kamp's recipes
I contacted you several years ago about looking for the recipe for Van de Kamp's jam tart recipes.
They came in raspberry and lemon. Have you come across this recipe? Thank you.
Sorry, still no success with this. I found some old newspaper ads that call these
ďVan de Kampís Raspberry or Lemon English Jam Tarts.ď Iím afraid Van de Kampís recipes
are locked away somewhere, and may never see the light of day again.
There are other English Jam Tarts recipes. Try these:
English Jam Tarts
Very British English Jam Tarts
Use raspberry jam for the raspberry, and lemon curd for the lemon.

Subject: So Fenix Chili Con Queso Dip
Can you get the recipe?
So, I looked for El Fenix's chili con queso recipe, but had no success. It
doesn't appear to be available. I'll post this on my site - perhaps a reader
Note: If anyone looks for this, be careful, because many of the Google hits
lead to malware sites.
