How to make it

  • Combine all the "dry" ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer with a dough hook, stirring well.
  • Add warm water, stir to combine, then knead for 6-7 minutes, until elastic.
  • Place dough into an oiled bowl and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 36 1-oz pieces (use a kitchen scale for dead-on accuracy if you like), and form into sticks, knots or whatever shapes you desire.
  • Keep the dough you aren't working with under a damp towel.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Bring a half-filled pot of water mixed with the baking soda to a boil.
  • Carefully add shaped dough 4-5 pieces at a time.
  • Cook in simmering until they float, about 30 seconds - 1 minute.
  • Remove from water and place on greased or parchment-liked baking sheets.
  • Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Brush pretzels with beaten egg white mixture and sprinkle with salt.
  • Bake 50-60 minutes (for full 1-oz pieces) or 30 minutes (for "bite-size" pretzel balls).
  • Cool completely, and store in a covered container.
