I’ve been wanting to try my hand at home-made pretzels for awhile, and late last week I gave it a shot. I used the recipe for roasted garlic pretzels from American Vegan Kitchen.

They tasted pretty good, but I’m definitely not good at the whole pretzel thing yet. I think the dough may have been too dry, and then shaping was a bit of a disaster. The dough was difficult to work with, and wasn’t very stretchy. I couldn’t even manage to roll them out into lengthy strips, so the pretzels were all fairly small. I’m sure I’ll be trying again soon.

Here are a few pictures of the process.

Have any of you tried your hands at pretzels? If so, have you got any tips for me on how to improve my next batch?
