First attempt at pretzels

DH had a craving.   We had purchased a mix for chewy pretzels last time we were in PA.  

Warm from the oven they were tasty.  They got hard very quickly however (within an hour)  The rolls were not a good idea, and they went to the wildlife.  Next time I will try one of the many recipes online.  I did find the idea of 2 cups of water with 3 Tablespoons of baking soda dissolved into it as the reason that pretzels brown the way they do.  Each pretzel was fully dipped in this mixture. 

These can be purchased online from www.dutchcountrysoftpretzels.com

  1. I love soft pretzels. I recently made pretzel bites using the recipe posted by David Lebovitz on his website/blog. It's just myself and my husband, so next time I make them, I will halve the recipe. But -- they were really delicious!!


I look forward to your comments and contributions
