Pretzel baked with sunshine and love

Viewfinder – Project 365 Days on food, travel, life and beyond

{Day 3 }

Pretzel baked with copious amount of sunshine and love claimed a Philadelphia based pretzel shop which features pretzels in differnt flavours and shape, filled with cheese and where the pretzel assumes an iconic stauture.

Pretzels made their maiden voyage to America in 19th century through the German immigrants, where it was originated and was known as brezel, made from dough with a symmetrical knot and glazed with sugar, chocolate to savory sauces.

This photograph was taken at Quincy market, Boston in BW camera mode

Though pretzel comes in many flavours, but I like the classic buttery one simply showered with sugar or sometimes accompanied by a cheese dip, and it becomes my absolutely favourite evening snacks. So on a weekend trip to Quincy market at Boston, (my favourite place as it houses so many eateries and from lobster rolls to crab cakes, all in one place..yummm…) when I saw these freshly baked pretzel, I could not resist. We bought two pretzel – the classic one sprinkled with sugar and the other glazed with chocolate, and later some pretzel dogs too, for a very pretzely evening !!!

This photograph has been given an aged effect known asalbumen“. This kind of photography was very popular during 1850 to 1890 and this inexpensive photographic method produced paper-based photos. Negatives were captured on glass and then print on paper that used albumen from egg whites to bind the light sensitive chemicals to the paper.
