This is an authentic German pretzel recipe for my neighbor who is from Germany. Weigh (on a scale) the flour, butter, and salt. Use a cold lye bath -- 50 g food grade lye and 1250 ml water (can be saved and reused) or boiling baking soda bath (2 tablespoons Baking Soda and 1 litre water, bring to boil) before baking. Prep time includes rise time. AWSOME!!!!
