Cover the bowl with plastic wrap until the dough has risen to twice its size, about 1 hour. Punch down and knead for 30 sec. to deflate. Divide the dough in half. Roll each half into a 12x6 in. rectangle. Cut each rectangle lengthwise into three 2 inch strips, leaving them joined at one end by a 1/2 inch piece. Braid the strips. Tuck under the ends to make the dough about the same length as the pan. Place in the bake pan. Cover with waxed paper, and let rise in a warm place until the dough rises about 1/2 inch above the pan, about 45 min.

Stir in another 2/3 cup of the potato water and the oil. Add eggs one at a time and stir briskly 37 Granny White until a dough ball is formed. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about ten minutes until dough ball is firm, adding a little extra flour if needed. Place in a greased bowl, turning the dough so all sides are greased. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and set aside in a warm place for about 1 hour until dough has risen to double its original size. Punch the risen dough down to flatten and remove from bowl.

Knead for 150 strokes, then return to the bowl, spray lightly with water and leave, covered, for 1 hour − not at too hot a temperature or the bagels will taste of yeast. Remove from bowl and divide into equal portions. Knead each briefly and form into a ball. Flatten and make a hole in the middle. You know, make it look like a bagel. Place on a floured baking tray, place the tray inside a carrier bag and leave to rise 30 minutes. When the time is up, have a large pan of simmering salted water ready.
