"I received some Pink Himalayan Salt for a present and wondered what to do with it, other than just as regular salt. In looking for Himalayan recipes, I ran into this one - included several ingredients from the Himalayan part of the world = pink salt, honey, mustard and wheat!"

Step 1

Mix 2 cups the flour, dry yeast and salt in a large bowl. Stir in warm water, oil and honey. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.

Step 2

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead about 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Heat oven to 400 degrees F and grease a cookie sheet.

Step 4

Divide dough into 12 equal parts. Roll each part into a rope about 18 inches long. Twist each rope into a pretzel shape and place on the cookie sheet. Brush pretzels with egg white and sprinkle with coarse sea salt and sesame seeds.

Step 5

Bake about 15 minutes or until pretzels are golden brown and crust is crisp. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

Step 6

Serve warm with mustard, if desired.
