273 – Licorice bagels


We arrived home to experience the delights of licorice bagels. A very distinctive flavour, and equally distinctive fragrance permeated every corner of the atmosphere.

I’m always fascinated at the supermarket – every time we go there’s a new range of goods – often variations of what we already have – seven or eight varieties of canned beetroot. 101 varieties of salad dressing. 202 varieties of breakfast cereals, as used by every cartoon character ever known, including every sports person in the history of humanity. Macro-biotic organic home-made gluten free carbon friendly not tested on animals condoms. Now with lime. Not licorice.

It’s been my experience that people are generally pretty conservative about what new tastes they are prepared to try. They go to restaurants and order the same as what they’d have at home. I’m the same too, I guess – new flavours take some time to be bedded down into our taste bud’s repertoire. The comfort zone.

By the way, speaking of comfort zones, should you need the recipe for licorice bagels, it is the same recipe as used for ‘Burn the House Down’, ‘Another Crisis Averted’, and the ever popular, ‘Lucky Escape’.
