On super bowl Sunday we had a number of friends over to watch the game. As football is not a sport I generally follow and sitting space in our living room was limited, I decided I would make pretzels.
I followed the pretzel recipe from Eric Treuille & Ursula Ferrigno's Ultimate Bread. I had made pretzels before with semi-success. They always came out too dense and chewy. These turned out fantastically. I doubled the recipe and followed it almost exactly. I topped them with coarse sea salt and served them warm with the two mustards John and I made over the last week:
On the left is our horseradish and vermouth mustard and on the right is our malt vinegar and stout mustard.
