the recipe I use, a lot of the recipe involves allowing the dough to rest for a set amount of time. And what is this but time management skills? These bagels also require 10 minutes of kneading. I don't know if you have ever kneaded dough or not, but after a couple of minutes, it gets pretty boring and takes a decent amount of energy. However, I plow through those 10 minutes out of dedication to create the best possible end product. In fact, the whole process of making bagels takes a certain amount of diligence to see the dough through the multi-step process all the way through baking it into delicious bagel goodness. And though my bagels don't look perfect, I am nonetheless proud of my hard work...and plan to proudly devour one tomorrow morning.
