These Pretzels are the nice big soft ones as bought from vending carts.
Party here tomorrow. Marilyn M. :) told me baking is so expensive. Well, this one is fun and cheap.
Make sure your yeast is not expired if you don't bake often. Checked mine. Good til June 2011. Hopefully that's reliable. The coarse salt is kind of needed. I forgot to find some.
2 cups hot water
1 package yeast (one tablespoon, 8 gr. is what the recipe says)
3/4 cup brown sugar
5 cups flour
lay in gently boiling basic solution for 30 sec. (made from 1 tablespoon baking soda per 1 cup of water)
put some rough, chunky salt on baking sheet, put pretzel on top.
Put some salt on top.
Bake at 475 Farenheit for about 12 min.
Serve warm with mustard and/or liversausage (and beer most likely).
Good fun for making with children.
