One of the things I miss from back East is a Philly soft pretzel. You can't get them here - and those freezer ones are awful. So, in desperation, I found a recipe and made my own. Dang if they don't taste just like the ones I got from Bernie's Pretzels back home! Mmmmmmmmmm, goodness! Soft Pretzels INGREDIENTS: 3/4 cup warm water 1/2 tablespoon yeast 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 1/2 cup bread flour (add more if needed) Pretzel Salt (or Kosher or Coarse Sea Salt) to taste DIPPING SOLUTION (use large saucepan): 1/4 cup baking soda 2 1/2 cups hot water EGG WASH 1 egg beaten with 2 tablespoons water In a KitchenAid mixing bowl with dough hook attachment, mix warm water and brown sugar. Sprinkle yeast on top and let rest for 5 minutes. Add flour and mix well until dough pulls away from the sides of the pan and it retains a ball shape. You may have to add a little extra flour until it balls up. Let rise in warm place until doubled, at least 20-30 minutes. While dough is rising: line baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly brush with vegetable oil. Prepare egg wash and dipping solution. Set aside. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On slightly oiled, clean work surface, (I actually opted for a floured surface because the dough is sticky) divide dough and shape into long ‘ropes’ and shape into pretzels or other shape. (This recipe makes 5-6 pretzels.) Let them rest for 5 minutes. Prepare dipping solution in large saucepan and turn burner to medium to keep solution hot. Put shaped dough into prepared dipping solution for about 30 seconds. Remove with a flat turner spatula and place on prepared cookie sheet. Re-shape if necessary. Brush with egg wash & sprinkle with pretzel salt (salt is optional). I used Kosher salt. Coarse sea salt would work, too. Bake for 5-8 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!13/5/11 Perfect Liver of Sulphur Patina (At Last!!!) TADA365 No: 249
After a slight battle with Liver of Sulphur to achieve the perfect patina, here are the pendant and earrings, all three with the same beautiful deep black patina. I am going to write down my successful method for using LoS gel. 1) VERY IMPORTANT - wear a face mask and work in a well-ventilated area. 2) IMPORTANT - the metal to be LoS-ed must be scrupulously clean before it is dipped into the solution, be it gel or lumps of LoS. I tumbled them, scrubbed them with a brass brush and Cif then a liquid soap and tooth brush and then rinsed them several times. They were super-clean :-) 2) Get your 'station' ready - tub for LoS, water to rinse, solution of baking soda (if you want), tweezers and kitchen roll. I made the gel solution quite strong as my previous 'experiments' had shown me the stronger the better. 3) Pick up the piece and dip it into the solution. Dip it in for a couple of seconds then straight into the water then you can see how the patina is developing. Keep on repeating until you have the colour that you want. 4) Leave the pieces to dry naturally, then rinse them in running water, gently rubbing them with your fingers. Pat the pieces dry and then do whatever you are going to do with them - a green scourer, a satin finish brush, fine sandpaper etc: These steps worked for me so I thought I would share them :-) Now they just need finishing off - I can't wait until they're finished.
