Keeping fresh bagels fresh
I need to buy bagels on Thursday, but won't be using them until Saturday. I know the ideal is to buy them the day I need them, but this time I just can't.
So, what is the best way to keep them fresh (or as fresh as possible) from Thursday until Saturday morning.
Should i freeze them? Refigerate them? What/
I store my bagels in freezer. Not the same texture as fresh but no worse for wear when toasting.
if you plan on serving them "as is" then make sure to defrost slowly and not in the sealed bag or you risk them getting soggy.
If you buy them fresh from a bagel store, just place in the freezer unsliced in the same paper bag in which they are packed. Remove about an hour or so on Saturday morning before you are ready to serve.
