hard pretzels are hard to make

yumbrooklyn | Mar 22, 2010 09:41 AM

I love hard pretzels (with mustard) and find it surprising how few options there are at the store. My gold standard is Martin's pretzels from the NYC Green Market. So, I decided to make this recipe from Alton Brown..... but it came out a mess. The dough was way too gooey, impossible to form into shapes because it was so sticky. And the end result was more like a salty bagel. Any advice as to where I went wrong? Why are there very few hard pretzel recipes online?
