I can’t believe that I am the one that people come to for answers about everything but the bagel seasoning. I have to admit that I had a hard time finding information on it, but if you do some digging you will find out that there are plenty of recipes that are available. You may have to go online and find them, but they are out there.
I would like to say that this article will be more helpful than any other because I made the spice myself. That is what I want to tell you, but it is not necessarily true. I found several recipes, so you should be able to do the same thing. The main thing is that you should be prepared for failure. This spice has a lot of ingredients, and just because one recipe doesn’t work doesn’t mean another won’t.
You may need more than one batch before you get it right. Don’t get discouraged if it takes a while; just keep trying until you get what you want.
The basics of creating a recipe is to take all the flavors you want, and combine them in a way that’s pleasing. For example, if I wanted to create the most basic BBQ sauce, I would combine the sweet of sugar, the tangy of vinegar, and the saltiness of salt and pepper. However, not just any combination will do. In fact, most combinations will be bad. So how do you get good combinations? This recipe will give you instructions on how to do so.
This particular recipe was made at my house on a Saturday afternoon. The ingredients are as follows:
– 1 cup apple juice
– 1/4 cup maple syrup
– 1 tbsp lemon juice
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp paprika
– 1/2 tsp chili powder
– 1 pinch cayenne pepper
– Salt and pepper to taste (I used about 3/4 tsp each.)
1) Combine all ingredients into a nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Stir frequently until everything but the cayenne has dissolved into a syrup. The maple syrup may thicken slightly; this is ok. Let simmer for about 10 minutes before removing from heat. You now have everything but the bagel seasoning.*”

We have a long list of items we can’t find in our local grocery store in Princeton. Here are some of the items:
Everything bagel spice – one of the ingredients needed to make this incredible bagel topping is an essential part of making the topping. Of course you could create it by mixing together poppy seeds, sesame seeds and salt, but if you don’t have to do that, why not just buy it?
Horseradish – some dishes just taste better with a little bit of horseradish in them. This specific horseradish is a popular local brand, so it may be easy for you to find.
Toffee bits – not everyone loves toffee, but if you do, toffee bits are an easy way to mix them into desserts or other foods. This brand is hard to find in Princeton, so we ordered online.
Creamy French dressing – another very popular local brand of French dressing. It’s also not easy to find in Princeton, so we order online too.
Coconut powder – here’s another staple that we use all the time. It comes from actual coconuts and has many uses! From our coconut cream pies to our coconut custard to our baked chicken in coconut sauce
