Papa Drexler's Bavarian Pretzels
April 29, 2009

The pretels were really good - I made them for an Oktoberfest party and got a lot of compliments. I had to add a lot of extra flour to the dough - it was too sticky to work with after adding just the stated amount in the recipe. I worked the dough by hand. I had to use a spatula to take the pretzels out of the water bath - they were a little easy to fall apart at that stage, but it got easier the more I did. It took a lot longer than the stated time - mostly due to having to keep adding more flour and the learning curve in shaping the pretzels - next time I might make "stix" instead of the traditional shape. Would probably go a lot faster the 2nd time around.
