Bagels

Bagels have been made and distributed in many countries for years. Bagels arrived in the United States in the late 19th Century courtesy of Jewish immigrants from Poland. They were sold on the streets of New York Lower East Side.


Bagels are deliciously chewy. Great cut in half, toasted, and then covered with plenty of butter. Add blackcurrent jam or peanut butter, or you can even mix peanut butter with jam or Marmite (British spread of yeast extract – high in vitamin B).


Bagels come in different flavours like wholemeal or sesame seed, and then cinnamon and raisins (seen in the snap) amongst other options which are all very tasty on the palate.


They are made from flour and yeast like bread, but instead of baking they are boiled first. Of course, like everything there must be a secret method to making them as tasty as the ones sold at Sainsbury’s supermarket in England.


They are sold in Brazil, as well (I cannot attest to the quality, as at the time of writing this blog I haven't been there), so if you haven’t tried one before it is worth buying a few. They are sold at Sainsbury’s for £1.20 (around R$9,48) in long plastic packets of five bagels of your choice.

Vocabulary builder:

Palate (appreciation of taste, appetite, enjoyment). Antonym = dislike.

The soft palate is the muscular part at the back of the roof of the mouth. It sits behind the hard palate, which is the bony part of the roof of the mouth. The palates play important roles in swallowing, breathing, and speech.
