On Monday, I got a great soft pretzel recipe in my inbox from Brown Eyed Baker. Who can resist this delicious looking picture? Based on the photos alone, I decided to put my pretzel-making anxiety aside and try it at home.
Big. Mistake. I have no idea where it went wrong, but somewhere along the line I botched this batch. I get the feeling it was the baking soda boil that made the pretzels taste awful. Actually, that’s not entirely true. There were bursts of deliciousness, but the grossness so outweighed the delicious bursts that I just couldn’t risk eating another pretzel that tasted like aspirin. Yuck.
In the spirit of failure though, I’m linking to the original recipe. Maybe you’ll have better luck than I did and if so, please post. I’m on to try another recipe.
