We've all enjoyed eating bagels recently, so we thought we'd make some of our own on the marvellous beast that is our new oven.

Nathaniel has become rather good at kneading:

And enjoyed watching the dough rise while we had a snack in the sun. He relished the punching down bit:

And did a good job at rolling the dough into sausages before I shaped them:

I have to admit that I did the poaching and baking after he went to bed - I couldn't really see a way that he was going to be able to poach without a total disaster!

I'd love to show you pictures of the stodgy (on purpose), glazed, yummy bagels that resulted, but we ate them rather quickly. Suddenly 1kg of flour was lining our stomachs!

But I think we'll be making more!
