Did you do a lye wash to help get the color? I've been doing baking soda with mine but I hear lye is the way to get a more genuine German pretzel flavor and color.

The first pretzel recipe I ever made was from the Food Network and I still stay pretty close to it because they come out great: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/a...ipe/index.html

I use bread flour instead of all purpose, honey instead of table sugar, and I knead it by hand instead of with a machine. Sometimes I sub out the water for beer. Also give it a 2-hour rise (or longer if you refrigerate the dough) instead of the ~1hr it says - the flavor is more betterer that way. I'll be making some sourdough pretzels soon, thanks to Melana

I've been curing a whole pork belly, did half as Pancetta and half Chinese style. The Chinese style was ready to cook this weekend, the pancetta will be rolled and hung later this week, then it needs a few weeks to cure.

As for pretzels, I've had great results from the King Arthur website's recipe's. I've also made their pretzel bun recipe and that was a winner. I can't bring myself to use lye on something I'm eating, I know it's dumb, but there you have it.

Made some beef teriyaki tonight. I took the easy way out on the sides, but the beef and rice were delicious.
