                         -----Pretzels-----
    2      Tsp           Yeast
    3      C             Flour
      1/2  Tsp           Salt
    1      Tbsp          Sugar
    1 7/8  Tbsp          Margarine -- or butter
    1      C             -Water
                         --Water For Bath--
    3      C             Water -- at a simmer
    3 3/4  tsp           Baking Soda
 
 Add into the bread machine in this order.  Set on manual.
 
  FORMING: Cut dough into short strips, roll into ropes and shape into
 pretzels. Cover with a tea towel and let rise for 45 minutes.
 
  BATH: In a cast iron or OTHER NONALUMINUM pan, bring almost to a boil 4
 cups of water and 5 teaspoons of baking soda. Gently place (by hand or
 using slotted spoon) the pretzels into the water for approximately 15
 seconds on each side turning once.  Do NOT let water come to a boil. Remove
 pretzels and place on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with coarse salt
 (kosher). Bake at 475 for 12 minutes.
 
  NOTE: In my oven it took only about 10 minutes so watch carefully. Do NOT
 make the strips too fat; they really puff up. If you are on a salt-free
 diet use sesame, poppy, garlic; whatever you like on the outside...the
 WHOLE family, both upstairs and downstairs loved them and the DAK did all
 the hard work.
 
  * If you use a machine that needs the water first add ingredients in
 reverse order.
