December 11 is National “Have a Bagel” Day
Here are today’s five thing to know about Bagel:
- Bagel is originated from Poland and it was designed for Lent. It is normally a ring shaped bread product.
- Its name derives from the Yiddish word ‘bengal’, meaning ‘ring’ or ‘bracelet’.
- Immigrant Polish-Jews brought bagel to the United States.
- Automated production and distribution of frozen bagels started in the 1960s with bagel baker Harry Lender, Murray Lender, and Florence Sender.
- The hole in the center of the bagel is for multiple bagels to be threaded onto a dowel, which allows bakers to transport the bagel more easily.
