When I started to think about what to photograph for my food photography post this month it seemed only appropriate that I would choose a German food from our travels to go along with all of the photos from Germany that have been going up on the blog every Monday.
An obvious win when it comes to German food is the humble, but delicious, pretzel.
Though not difficult to make, pretzels are a bit time consuming and they can be intimidating since some traditional recipies call for the use of food safe lye. I used the recipie from Amanda’s Cooking (click to be taken to her site for the recipie) which substitutes baking soda for lye and as you can tell from the photos you still get a deep brown, chewy pretzel using this method. If you follow me on Instagram, the dogs thought that they were a hit (click to see proof) and so did the husband.
