Other carbs of late include BAGELS! I’ve brought the bagel craze to Australia. This time we used molasses instead of honey or malt barley. I think malt barley gives a slightly nuttier flavor, but the molasses was nice too. Fellow bagel-makers — what do you use? And do you put the sweetener in the dough, in the water, or in both?

Anthony and I covered about four miles at a very leisurely pace — I think our final average was something like a 10:30/mile! Lots of stops to walk and navigate through some non-paved, hilly trails.
