TIP OF THE DAY: Bake Pretzels

Today is National Pretzel Day. Bake up a delicious batch of soft pretzels with this recipe.

Pretzels were created in 610 C.E. by a European monk whose name is lost to history. Food historians trace him to Italy or Southern France.

He formed leftover bread dough in a shape that represent children’s arms folded in prayer. The baked pretzels were given as a reward to children who had successfully memorized their prayers. The original word, “pretiola,” is Latin for “little reward.”

We’ll bite to that!
