    I have to confess I have never tried making homemade pretzels , but I am going to give these a try. I think I always hesitated as the recipes I read involved dipping the pretzels into boiling baking soda water prior to baking and brushing with beaten egg. It just seemed more complicated than I wanted to fool with. While on vacation one summer I remember touring a pretzel factory. I can’t recall the town but would have been in the Lancaster PA area. They gave us a “lump” of dough and let us hand roll a pretzel. I recall buying the pretzel rods from a large canister with a red lid at out local swimming pool. They were 2 cents each but that was in the fifties.

      My wife kind of felt the way you do, Nana, which is that it was a lot of work for something that you could buy just as cheaply and often tastier. She had fun making the pretzels with Aster and the final product was good, but Auntie Anne’s, well, you can’t beat her pretzels!

    Love pretzels. Such a cute picture of Aster.
