I’ve had a few people wanting the recipe for the pretzels so I thought I’d post it here:
They are best fresh.
Homemade Soft Pretzels
1 and 1/2 cups warm water
1 packet active instant yeast (2 and 1/4 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
4 cups flour
coarse sea salt for sprinkling
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Mix all ingredients except coarse salt. Knead dough well. Let rest and raise for ½ hour. Make long ropes and shape like pretzels.
Preheat oven to 375. Boil for 30 seconds or more in a bath of baking soda and water(about ½ c. soda to 8 c. water). Sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake on cookie sheets at 375 for 25 min. or until nicely golden. You can serve them warm, and even add cinnamon and sugar.
