Prejudice



NYC has the best in the world,
those doughy wheels with holes.

Walking past steamed windows,
they lay out much like
Amsterdam ladies of the night,
beckoning you within.

And within I go.

I glide past the Cinnamon Raisin,
hardly look at the whole wheat,
thumbs down to the Everything.

Right to the Plain, I focus.
A smooth, naked, wonder.

Yep, Plain, ah, but plain it isn't.

Perfect plump and tender flesh
surrounds the perfect hole.

A light heat to tan the surface,
butter, dripping down the edge,
I bite into the sublime.

Licking yellowed wet off my fingers,
I can't wait til my date in the morning.

Hoping she's fresh.

Wasn't there a movie about that called "The Baguiled?" Anyway, she would have been bathed in hot water so was fresh as a summer's eve, although still somewhat crusty.

I’ve read that NYC’s bagels are the best because of the water.

Heard that too. NYC tap water, because of the robust 100+ year old water mains. Maybe the water is aged like whiskey in old barrels down there.

Hmmm. I suppose I could compare NYC bagels to Jersey bagels. HYC water is actually very good.

My vote goes to Jersey for Stein's bagels in Montvale. Liberty Bagels in Midtown Manhattan runs them a close second.

That might be a cottage industry for you, shipping NY water for bagel production. We can have them modify the recipe below to specify using only authentic BPJ-NYC Water:

Like the warning label on cigarette packs? "This product will make you insufferable".

Lender's was the first to freeze their bagels and ship them across the country. What essence of the famed NYC water remains in a thawed bagel? Is it more than just rat doody?

Lenders is far away from New York now, anyhow:

https://www.perishablenews.com/bakery/conagra-sells-lenders-bagels-mattoon-plant-to-grupo-bimbo/

MATTOON — Conagra Brands has sold Lender’s Bagels and its Mattoon bagel factory to Bimbo Bakeries USA, Inc., a business unit of Mexico City-based Grupo Bimbo.

Chicago-based Conagra announced the divestiture earlier this month in a press release on its corporate website, with the transaction including “the Lender’s brand and related intellectual property, the production facility in Mattoon, Ill., and inventory.”

Translation: Forty years ago, I had a job and could stop in a bagel shop for breakfast. Nowadays the store owners see me coming and break out their broom.

Here they name the often skipped step of boiling the bagel as the secret:
