Soft Pretzel Win

We made soft pretzels tonight and I actually gasped when I opened the oven door. I have never achieved such a beautiful pretzel!

Alton Brown’s recipe taught me the baking soda/water soak, which is apparently key. According to some of the commenters a good German soft pretzel recipe uses lye instead of baking soda but it is a darn good pretzel and I didn’t need protective gear to make them.
