The History of Bagels
Why they are a great choice.

"Though the origins of bagels are somewhat obscure, it is known that they were widely consumed in eastern European Jewish communities from the 17th century. The first known mention of the bagel, in 1610, was in Jewish community ordinances in Kraków, Poland.
The basic roll-with-a-hole design is hundreds of years old and has other practical advantages besides providing for

  • a more even cooking and baking of the dough
  • The hole could be used to thread string or dowels through groups of bagels,
  • allowing for easier handling and transportation
  • and more appealing seller displays"
  • Bagels are baked, not Deep Fat Fried making them better for you!
