I Tried To Make A 100-Year-Old Pretzel Recipe • Tasty

  • Published on: 29 November 2019
  • There’s nothing better than a pretzel! The salt! The shape! The design! But where do pretzels come from? Have they always been as knotty as they appear? On the finale of Edible History, Hannah untwists the history of the pretzel with author and pretzel expert William Woys Weaver before taking on a 100-year-old recipe.

    Yeah use natron instead of lye (it breaks down into lye under heat but very dilute lye so it´s just safer) and if you work with lye be sure you have a STEEL pot. Aluminum reacts with lye (well not really, but that´s no time for a chemistry lesson. Lye destroys aluminum pots and releases hydrogen gas which is a) explosive and b) if it doesn´t explode burns with an invisible flame. Lye is pretty mucha catalyst for that so even tiny amounts of lye turn your pot into a cloud of explosive gas with water so don´t use aluminum)

    Watched this video then made pretzel nuggets from scratch better then answer store I’ve bought from. Didn’t use this recipe but the inspiration was there.

    First want to say that i am an old school French trained British chef, Now semi retired, so by default, I do not usually watch cookery programmes, however I have a strong interest in food history and often make old recipes, for my own amusement. Also like most people these days, I am stuck at home watching youtube. I can tell you however that back in 1978, i worked in a very nice hotel in Hong Kong and amungst loads of other Germananic bakery and meat items, we made traditional German pretzels and used caustic soda for the shine, im fairly sure in upscale places that they still do. Anyway I just want to say I love your show, you are very entertaining and funny, unlike most here.

    Wood ash probably could have been used instead of lye.

    This was rather disappointing. She had all the ingredients to make a great pretzel, but I guess the focus on humor got in the way of actually trying.
