Fresh bagels with a little schmear on it are hard to beat. Hard to beat unless you add blueberries to the mix, that is. That’s exactly what these are, delicious New York Style Blueberry Bagels.
So what makes a bagel NY Style? I looked this up and found that there are predominantly two types of bagels in North America. The Montreal Style and the New York style. The difference between the two types of bagels are subtle but notable. While the Montreal bagel is made with malt, sugar, no salt, and is boiled in honey-sweetened water before being baked in a wood-fired oven, the New York Style bagel contains salt in addition to the malt and sugar, is boiled in plain water and is baked in a standard oven.
