How to make it

  • Directions
  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center; add the oil and yeast mixture. Mix and form into a dough. If the mixture is dry, add one or two tablespoons of water. Knead the dough until smooth, about 7 to 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a large bowl, dissolve baking soda in hot water.
  • When risen, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a rope and twist into a pretzel shape. Once all of the dough is all shaped, dip each pretzel into the baking soda solution and place on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, until browned.

    Oh how I love these, love yellow mustard.....The last time I had one was in San Francisco about 30 years ago (I was just a youngster :D) and I have always thought they would be near impossible to make. I'm going to give it a try! Thanks so much for this post! :)
