best NYC bagels

From the Kitchen of ... / New York, New York
The perfect morning. Sunshine. Hot coffee. And fresh homemade bagels! This morning was a first attempt at making completely homemade bagels which started last night with making the sponge, kneading the dough, shaping the bagels, passing the float test, retarding the dough - and then letting them sit overnight in the fridge. We got up this morning, briefly boiled the bagels and then into the oven they went. Twenty minutes later we were biting into the best bagels EVER - I mean it. Ess-a-Bagel, H&H, Absolute - move over.
