Whole Wheat Bagel Recipe
4 c Joseph's Grainery Hard Red Whole Wheat Bread Flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast (or 1 pkg)
1 1/2 c warm water
3 Tbsp honey + 1 Tbsp Honey
1 tsp sea salt
Directions: Stir together 2 cups of the flour, the salt and yeast. Add in the warm water and 3 Tbsp of honey. Gradually add in the remaining flour. Knead the flour (or let your mixer with the bread hook do the work) until the dough is smooth and elastic. Cover and let rise for about 10 minutes.
Divide the dough into twelve equal parts.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Stir in the remaining 1 Tbsp of honey.
Place 4 bagels in the boiling water and simmer for 7 minutes, turning the bagels at the half way mark. Remove the bagels from the water and place on a towel.
Once all of the bagels have been boiled, place them on a baking sheet and bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
