A Message from the Pretzel Council
We at the Pretzel Council celebrate all kinds of pretzels and the brave men, women and children who manufacture them with love. Yet there’s a special place in our hearts for naturally grown pretzels. Yes, wild pretzels come in many different forms, today we’ll take a look at pretzel trees. The most prominent of the pretzel bearing trees is the Eastern Steamhat (figure 1). The same trees that Walt Whitman mentioned in his famous poem Things I See While Drunk on my Porch
“Man o’ man do I hate bee’s
Hey, is that a pretzel tree?”
Wild tree pretzels have a nutty earthy taste prized by many top pretzel chefs. So do yourself a flavor and try a wild pretzel!
