Pretzels, round 2!

Increasing the gluten content seemed to help a LOT.  I added about 1 1/2 T of gluten flour to the recipe I used before.  Wow, what a difference– lighter, fluffier, easier to chew.

It made them a little harder to roll out, however.

Pretzel making

NOTE: The .resized in all the titles simply reflect that I resized the photos in a batch through a program.

I used a bread machine to mix up the dough– a Salton Toastmaster.  I'm feeling a little too lazy to write up the recipe, but I'll do so if you wish me to.  Most of the pretzels were salted with kosher salt I had left from a frozen soft pretzel package, and I used sesame seeds when I ran out.

I managed to snake some really awesome homemade sweet mustard from our church Christmas party– someone there told me that tomato soup was the secret ingredient.  (No idea.)
