We’re making pretzels!
There’s a chill in the air, likely some sort of football related programming on the television, and it’s time to get more warm and decadent in our snacking.
Let’s Baking Bootcamp! We’re making sourdough pretzels. They’re special… and surprisingly easy to make! Plus we’ll have sourdough starter in our fridge for future waffles and infinity pretzels. Our future-selves thank us already.
Do you know about the wonders of sourdough?
Sourdough is is a fermented leavening mixture that is replenished after each use, making it an infinite source of leavening and flavor. A sourdough starter kept alive in the refrigerator (I lovingly think of mine like a house plant), can be used to make simple pancakes or waffles, or yeasted breads and loaves. King Arthur’s Sourdough Guide is inspiring! There’s so much delicious we can make.
A few years back I started my own sourdough starter that I think somehow got mixed up with a jar of something rather questionable in my fridge (it happens) and got tossed in the trash.
I now have this lovely Sourdough and Crock Set alive in my refrigerator. It comes in handy for quick weekend breakfasts and irresistible pretzels.
If you’d like to embark on an sourdough adventure, here’s how to create your own sourdough starter.
It’s time! Join me. We’ll pretzel well.
