We have enjoyed some fabulous cool weather the last couple of days. Really wonderful when heat is the norm. And the coolness brings out the baker in me. I found a really simple recipe for pretzels in the King Arthur website which enables me to make use of my sourdough starter. Baking with sourdough is a very good thing!
And without further ado, these pictures show my progress, only wish I could share the wonderful aroma that fills the house while they bake!
A quick boil in a solution of baking soda and water brought to a boil is a technique I read from one of the commenters on the KAF thread.
Ready to be salted before baking
I didn't have pretzel salt, so I used coarse sea salt- need to find out what the difference is.
Baked and ready to eat. Good stuff!
Hope this cool weather continues. This cool baking weather!
