Making Pretzels

As previously mentioned, last week we watched a "reality show" about amateur chefs in a contest. Bread was the theme and the participants were challenged to make soft pretzels, among other things. Well, in my time I've made bagels, gnocchi, tortellini, and more, but never pretzels. Still, the interest remained and so this morning we gave it a try. I was pretty sure that we hadn't let the dough rise enough, but I was in a rush to get to work so we kneaded and shaped our dough nonetheless. The result was beautiful and delicious - or "delish" - as my proud chefs crowed with delight.
