I made pretzels one weekend using a recipe from a book I had borrowed from the library. I followed the very simple recipe and it worked! However, the pretzels don’t keep well. I gave some to my mom and a colleague, and they both said it had turned a bit hard and dry. My mother said she dunked it in coffee. Hee hee.
For a lazy afternoon snack, this can be a winner, although I think for our Asian palate, rather bland.
