I'm curious about this recipe. Most pretzel recipes I've seen include a quick 'bath' in either lye or baking soda solution. This one has neither. However, if it works this way as well, it is surely an easier recipe. Perhaps the fact that it's finished off in a sweet way, makes the 'bath' not necessary. Or, could one include it here?
