Did you know . . .

That the Pretzel gets it's own National Day. Yeah, it's true. So in honor of it being National Pretzel Day, I share our family's adventure in pretzel making. I used this recipe that I found, but I cut it in half. No problems. They tasted great!My big boy helped mix, roll, and shape the pretzels. Although, I think, his favorite part was dipping them in the soda water; followed by eating what he had made.

{Homemade Pretzels}
Combine: 1 1/2 C warm water with 1 1/2 pkts dry yeast
Add: 2 Tbsp brown sugar and 1 tsp salt
Add: 1 C bread flour and 3 C regular flour
Knead until smooth. Place in an oiled bowl and let rise for 1/2 hour.
Mix together: 2 C warm wate and 2 Tbsp soda
Pinch of some dough and roll 12-14 inches in length. Dip into the soda water, and shape into a pretzel. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
