Because you know someone that has a mustard company… perhaps you should make homemade PRETZELS ! ! !

Pretzel Bites


  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon yeast, active dry OR SUBSTITUTE: equal parts baking soda and lemon juice to equal the amount of yeast called for.
  • 3 1/2 cup gluten free flour
  • 1 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 10 cup filtered water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt


  1. In a small bowl, add the water, raw honey, yeast OR SUBSTITUTE variation. Let sit for a few minutes until it starts to bubble – magic is happening!
  2. While you wait for it to thicken, in a mixer add the flour, salt, and baking powder and mix until blended.  Add in oil and yeast mixture slowly. Mix until ball of dough forms, then mix for 1 more minute to knead the dough.
  3. Brush top of dough lightly with a “bit” of oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature for 1 hour – it’s perfectly okay if it not “ballooning” per use of the substitute “yeast”.
  4. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper. Set aside.
  5. Bring the 10 cups of water and the baking soda to a rolling boil in an wide 8-quart saucepan or roasting pan.
  6. Once the dough has risen, turn it out onto a slightly oiled work surface and divide into 4-5 pieces. Roll out each piece of dough into a rope – this is the FUN part!!! Slice each rope into 1 1/2-inch pieces.
  7. Using a spoon lower a handful of the pretzel pieces into the boiling water and boil them for 30 seconds, flipping them around in the water with the spoon a couple of times. Remove the pretzel pieces from the water using the spoon, drain as best you can, and place them on the baking sheets.
  8. Brush the top of each pretzel with oil and sprinkle with salt.
  9. Bake until dark golden brown in color, approximately 10 – 12 minutes.  Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce or homemade mustard – I choose my fave brand by The Mustard Girl – – – Tell them Katherine Brown from “Just Bein’ Honest” sent you!
