I have a family member that is begging me to make pretzel rolls. This is, apparently, a new fad in the food world. New to me at least...
I have made pretzels before, and the method doesn't seem conducive to rolls. They have to be boiled in a baking soda mix prior to baking and are rather dense. I could adjust the hydration to compensate for density, but the boiling thing troubles me.
I just cannot picture how to do this. Can anyone give me pointers? A picture of a pretzel roll and its crumb would be very helpful as well. I can come up with the recipe myself, but I need a point of reference.
