National Pretzel Day: Take a look inside local pretzel making

Elkhart If you are looking for something fun to do with the family this weekend you may want to participate in National Pretzel Day. National Pretzel Day is this Saturday and WNDU wanted to take a look behind the scenes to see what it takes to make a pretzel.

Our morning crew went over to Pumpernickel’s Pretzel Bakery in Elkhart Friday morning. The bakery is located at 500 South Main Street in Elkhart.

The bakery has been open for about a year, but the owner, David Ullery, has been running a catering business in that location for about 11 years.

He says they wanted to do something with the space and were excited about the improvements downtown Elkhart was making, so he and his wife decided on pretzels. They brainstormed ideas and got the ball rolling.

Ullery says business has been really good and continues to grow. They sell plain, cinnamon, jalapeño and honey wheat pretzels. They also sell pretzel buns and make sandwiches on them.

Plus, a new addition to the menu could be a bacon pretzel.

“That has been one of the favorite things we have done so far. Cooked bacon fresh, chopped it up and put it right into the dough. Then, we did a sandwich last weekend that had turkey and melted brie and that was real popular so we will definitely be doing more of those and probably have to put the bacon pretzels on the menu,” says Ullery.

For a list of times and more on the menu just go to Pumpernickel’s Facebook page.
