Pretzel cooking:

Step 1: prepare the milk.

In order for us to dissolve the yeast, we need to slightly warm the milk. And for this we put a small pan with a dairy product on a small fire and heat to a warm state. Then - turn off the burner and pour the component into a deep plate.

Step 2: dissolve the yeast.

With a knife, cut fresh yeast into small pieces and put them on a plate with warm milk. We also add sugar to the components and, with constant stirring with a tablespoon, dissolve the yeast component until pieces of yeast stop floating on the surface, and the milk becomes a grayish-beige color.

Step 3: prepare the dough.

Pour flour and salt into a deep bowl. Mix the ingredients well with a dry tablespoon. And now gently pour the yeast solution into the flour mixture. Knead the dough in the container until it begins to stick off from the hands. Then we spread the dough on a previously prepared kitchen table, powdered with flour, and continue to knead it until the dough becomes elastic. Attention: if you feel that the consistency of the test product is not elastic enough, then you can add a little more "by eye" flour. Just do not overdo it, since an excessive amount of the flour component can affect the preparation of the dish. After - give the test a round shape and transfer it back to the bowl. Cover the dishes with a towel and put in a warm place for 30 minutesto make the dough rise and increase in volume.

Step 4: prepare the pretzels.

At the end of the allotted time, lay out the dough again on the flour-dusted table and knead it several more times. Then with the help of the hands we make a rather thick “sausage” from the test “bun” and cut it with a knife for 16 pieces. Attention: We try to divide the "sausage" into parts of the same size. And now the most interesting moment! Sprinkle flour in your hands to make it more convenient to work with the dough. We roll each test piece in our palms so that we get one more “sausage”, but it’s already much thinner and approximately 50-60 centimeters. But that is not all! We spread the "sausage" round back onto the kitchen table, twisting the ends with a pigtail. It turns out here is such a beautiful pretzel. Meanwhile, when all the pretzels are formed, cover the baking sheet with baking paper and turn on the oven so that it warms up to temperature 200 ° C. In parallel, we put a pot of purified water on a large fire and bring it to a boil. When the water boils, make a medium heat and pour a tablespoon of baking soda into the container. Having mixed the ingredient several times so that it completely dissolves in water, make a minimum fire. When the water begins to boil again, lower each pretzel in turn into the soda solution and keep it there for 25-40 seconds. After - we take out the dish using a slotted spoon from the container and transfer it to a baking sheet already covered with special paper. Attention: Skimmer must be non-metallic! By the way, we do this so that our pretzels turn out to be dark brown, which is very important for this baking. Sprinkle each pretzel with poppy seeds, salt and sesame seeds to taste and put in the oven. Bake the dish for 15-20 minutes until saturated golden brown baking appears.

Step 5: serve the pretzels.

When the dish is ready, turn off the oven and remove the pan from it. We leave the pretzels to cool to room temperature, because they need to be served chilled. Well, you can taste such delicious pastries with a cup of tea or even a glass of beer. Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - When you sprinkle the pretzels with salt, use only coarse rock salt, not extra.

- - In order for the dish to leave well after baking from baking paper, in any case do not grease it with oil. Just wait until the pretzels become room temperature.

- - If you don’t have any fresh yeast at hand, do not be discouraged. An excellent substitute for them is 5 grams of dry fast-acting yeast. Only then the amount of milk must be reduced by 150 milliliters, and the flour should be added “by eye” until the dough becomes elastic.

- - For the preparation of this dish, be sure to take the highest grade and only trusted brands, because it depends on this ingredient - whether you get pretzels or not.

- - If you are a lover of sweets, then powder from poppy seeds and sesame seeds can be replaced with regular sugar. In this version, the pretzels are also very tasty.

- - Actually, the number of test pieces depends on how many pieces of pretzels you want to make. But, the more you want to make baking, the less pieces you will have from the dough, and the more painstaking your work will be.
