Recipes Tips

If you don't have coarse salt on hand, you can use regular table salt or even sesame seeds to top the pretzels. Make sure your water is boiling before adding the baking soda to it. This will help the pretzels develop the characteristic chewy crust. Finally, don't be afraid to experiment with different shapes for your pretzels. You can make them into twists, braids, or even hearts for a fun twist on the classic pretzel.

In conclusion, this sourdough pretzel recipe is a great way to use up your sourdough starter and impress your friends and family. With a little patience and practice, you can make delicious and chewy pretzels right in your own kitchen. Happy baking!
