Cardamom Scented Candy Potato Sourdough Bagels #BreadBakers

Though I am not too massive on retailer purchased bagels, home made bagels are one other matter altogether.  A lot simpler on the tooth and simply the flavors you want.  For this batch, I made a decision to make use of up a purple candy potato.  You should utilize purple or orange, additionally referred to as garnet yams I imagine.  It is arduous to inform what’s a real candy potato in the usA.  I don’t normally buy the white ones which might be in all probability true candy potatoes.  The cardamom is a spice I like and truthfully I want I had used extra because it was virtually undetectable.  The bagels had been scrumptious regardless.  They turned out simply pretty and I might make them once more.  Home made is the one manner I like bagels anyway.  If bagels are wrinkled after boiling, they’ve been over proofed.  I simply discovered this.  And that is the primary time I’ve made bagels that haven’t been wrinkled! 

Fairly happy that these had been ok to transform my mother who was visiting and would not usually like bagels.  Pretty taste and lightweight sweetness.  Thanks to Cook with Renu for internet hosting our bagel theme for this month’s BreadBakers!
