Soft Pretzels

Thanks Robin, I love soft pretzels though I've never tried making them. I used to buy the frozen ones and they were pretty decent, and a friend told me a trick for mustard. His trick: mix Coleman's dry mustard with just enough beer to get the consistency you want. That works great for flavor but the texture leaves something to be desired, so I started playing with it. Mixing the mustard/beer a bit thick, I added various liquids to get the smoothness I wanted. Honey works pretty well but for pretzels, olive oil seems best. Anyway, can't wait to try your pretzel recipe! (09/05/2006)
