Made these for the first time and they turned out great.

Very easy to do.

  • Those look great ;) How did you shape them? Mine always turn out deformed looking.

  • Looks great Frankie-I wish I had one to go with the Wachusett's Ryde right now. Nice shaping.

    Hand rolled the dough into a long piece about 2 feet long and then made a U shape.

    Then folded the ends over and pinched them into the dough.

    The process is kinda hard to describe.

    I made eight pretzels.


    The first four looked funny.

    Of course I "forgot" to take pictures of those! :)

    I like that -

    I think I'll keep that recipe in my back pocket for when I'm in the Dog House. Making some of those would be like a get out of jail free card.

    I love making those, problem is, I only eat one then feel guilty about all the carbs. Then I have to give the rest away. -RP

    You never sent any to me :angry: :P I could eat 10 of them in one setting. Yours look a lot better than mine also.

    Frankie I've made Altons recipe before and the boil is where mine get distorted. I have an old south philly non boil recipe around here somewhere that my mom clipped from a paper back in the 60's. I'll post it here when I come across it. A little mustard and I could eat those things all night.

    They look mighty tasty. I think you just inspired me to try some pretzels. Yours look like real pretzels; I am a firm believer in "free form" pizzas, and my pretzels will also probably follow the free form method. Thanks for the recipe.
