Lets get down to the basics what makes a bagel a bagel? It's a yeast dough made with malt which is shaped into a ring and boiled in salted water to form the distinctive bagel crust.
The exact time that you boil, how much you allow it to raise before the boil, how you handle your dough all make a huge difference in how a the final product ends up. This is why there are so few
great bagel places, and why so many "Bagel" places exist.
Montreal bagels are different from the rest in one very interesting feature. They don't boil their bagels in salt water, they boil them in honey water. This gives the crust a distinctive sweet flavor which we don't have in the US. They also tend to be quite generous with the toppings.
