Makes: 12 medium pretzels
Pretzel bites: (a couple of dozen)
In a small bowl put 1 teaspoon sugar. Add the yeast and 1 ¾ cups warm water. Stir gently. Cover and let rise until foamy. About 10 minutes.
In a large bowl or the bowl of a heavy-duty mixer add:
5 cups white Kamut, ½ cup sugar and 1 ½ teaspoons salt. Blend well. Add the yeast mixture, canola, and honey. Mix thoroughly. Add ¼ to ½ cup warm water to get the consistency of soft dough. Combine. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and Knead by hand or knead in the mixer for up to 7 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Push the dough out onto the counter and cut into 12 pieces. Roll each piece by hand about 20 inches long. Shape into a Pretzel. Set aside on the counter. Continue shaping the dough into Pretzels until you have 12 Pretzels.
Serve right out of the oven or place on cooling rack to cool.
