Pretzel Tutorial

crafts, Svara

Here is Svara to show you how to make pretzels!

First you start with a long rope of dough:

Then you sprinkle it with cinnamon:

Next you position it just so….

You fold in one side and press well:

Press in the second side now:

lastly you squish it all up into a ball of dough and eat it!  (“just poh-tend eat” Svara has to remind you)

After about two weeks of daily pretzel twisting, Svara is getting quite good.  I’ll have to get a picture of her more recent attempts.  She actually crosses the two sides now.  So while there is no twist in the middle, it still has the required three holes of a pretzel.  She also likes to put it into a bowl of “baking water” (water with baking soda) and then into an “oven” to finish cooking.  Oh, and she doesn’t forget the sprinkling of salt either!
