Have the dough in the fridge. Will pull it out and place in unlit oven for 8 hours while I'm at work! See how well that approach works.

And my last bagel fell victim to mold. :(

Is there any natural way to inhibit such rapid growth of mold? Honey?

I don't use a mold.  I hand-form mine, sweety...  ;)

Hehe. 

As usual having a lot going on mentally I forgot the dough.

Definitely something I will explore. I wanted- no, needed that bagel this morning.

Bagels freeze well.  My wife brings home several dozen from NJ when she goes back to visit family.  They (bagels) freeze/thaw with no problems.  Our slotted toaster has a frozen bagel mode.

Jersey bagels + Puna coffee = YUM!

OK! I will pull the dough out before bed and make when I get up.

Another batch out of the oven. This time with 1 tsp lye in three quarts and 2 minute poach per side and 30 minutes in the oven- I'm getting a much better golden color that I like.

Nice and crispy, shiny and with a few gooey bits. Nice. I love bagels.
