Homemade Soft Pretzels

Erin SheehanI love baking but most of the year there is just too much to do relating to the garden. But in the winter, I’m freed to spend time with the oven! When it comes to baking, I seem to especially enjoy trying new recipes for complicated things that are cheap to buy already-made, ha ha. In keeping with that, last weekend I tried my hand at making soft pretzels. They turned out to be fun to make and tasted great. The biggest challenge of making them was not eating all of them in one sitting.

Baking pretzels takes a few hours, but they taste a lot better than the frozen ones you buy at the grocery store. And if you have children at home it could be a fun project to take on together. Here’s the recipe I used. I hope you will give it a try.

Soft Pretzel Bites

1 cup warm water (I used zucchini milk)

1 tablespoon sugar

2-1/2 teaspoons yeast
