Tinkering with Pretzels
Did you know that Catholic monks created the first pretzels? The unique knot shape represented the Holy Trinity. They were handed out by the monks when their young pupils recited their prayers correctly.
My Tinker Bear™ has a couple of ideas for this week:
- Bake up a batch of pretzels
- Buy a bag of pretzels and make this cheesy pretzel dip for them
- Visit Pretzel impresarios Wetzel’s, Auntie Anne’s, or Philly Pretzel Factory and see what special giveaways they have on April 26.
Be sure to take pictures of you tinkering with pretzels. Why not start a photo collage of favorite recipes on your refrigerator?
My Tinker Bear™ thinks it would be good to create a “Tap Your Phone Here” sticker to put on a picture of your homemade pretzels or pretzel dip so you could have the recipe handy any time you like.
