Menu for the Week of February 7

Those there are some pretzels. Sorry for the lousy photo: iPhones aren't known for their phenomenal photographic ability. These are from the recipe in this Sunday's New York Times Magazine. I used rye flour from Schartner Farms in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. I have to admit to a slight bit of crankiness when I saw that Pete Wells did not include weight measurements for the flours he used.

My gift to you: the weights I used to produce mine. I've put the entire ingredient list below, refer back to the NY Times site for the instructions.

Rye Pretzels - Ingredient list
  • 0.25 ounces (2.25 tsp) ounce active dry yeast
  • 0.75 ounces honey
  • 5 ounces rye flour
  • 12.4 ounces bread flour + another 1.75 ounces kneaded in while I was working the dough
  • 1 tbs kosher salt
  • 1 ounce melted butter
  • 2 ounces baking soda
