Happy National Pretzel Day!
Happy National Pretzel Day! To celebrate, consider making your own. Believe it or not, they're really not that hard -- probably the most complicated part is learning how to twist them to get that knot just right. And nothing beats the flavor of a homemade pretzel fresh out of the oven. We ran a story last year on homemade pretzels, including a bunch of recipes and tips:
- Pretzels 101
- Recipe: Soft pretzels
- Recipe: Hard pretzels
- Recipe: Pretzel rolls
- Pretzel toppings from salt to chocolate
- How to make various pretzel washes
