Pretzels with Honey-Mustard Dip

  1. 1Put the flour into a large bowl and make a well in the middle. Add the cold water and dissolve the dried yeast and sugar in it. Knead for about 3 minutes. Add the salt and melted butter and knead for another 5-10 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  2. 2Divide the dough into 10 equal dough balls of about 90 g, and form strings. The strings should be thick in the middle and get thinner towards both ends and form the pretzels.
  3. 3Place the pretzels on a floured towel and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  4. 4Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the honey on low heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the mustard “à l’ancienne” and the mustard “original”. Refine with freshly chopped parsley.
  5. 5Preheat the oven to 210°C.
  6. 6Heat the water in a large pot, reduce the heat and add the soda. Now immerse each pretzel for 10 seconds into the water and remove with a ladle.
  7. 7Place the pretzels on a baking tray with baking paper, and sprinkle with coarse salt or sesame seeds. Bake the pretzels for 15 minutes.
