What Is Pretzel Salt?

If you have ever eaten a soft pretzel at a baseball game or pub, then you have had Pretzel Salt.

It is the specific salt used on pretzels, offering the brittle texture and intense salt flavor. This flavor works with the soft and chewy dough of the pretzel, offering a great pairing. Dunk the pretzel into a coarse ground mustard or beer cheese sauce and are on to new culinary beginnings!

How Pretzel Salt Is Used

The name gives it away, but the salt is in fact used on pretzels.

Before baking, an egg wash or other liquid is brushed onto the pretzel before the salt is added. Once the pretzel is wet, the salt is added and then the pretzels are baked.

The utility of Pretzel Salt does not need to stop at just pretzels however. It can be added to homemade rolls or bread, in which it will give the bread that wonderful salty flavor and crunchy texture. Any baked good can utilize pretzel salt to add depth of flavor and texture.

We suggest you start with our Bacon and Cheddar Bites Pretzel recipe.

The Specific Need For Pretzel Salt

Pretzel Salt is really coarse salt and it is specifically needed when baking pretzels. The reasons for this start with the fact that the salt does not melt when being baked. It is able to withstand the temperature of the baking process while the pretzel dough forms and cooks.

Additionally, its signature texture is a huge part of what makes pretzels so enjoyable. The crunch of the salt brings contrast to the softness of the pillow, leaving the person eating the pretzel with various textures to interest them.
