PostSubject: German Grub!!   12/6/2014, 16:14

Along with all the usual plates of German grub that many have tasted whilst station in BAOR. Did anyone ever get a liking for Saurkraut (Pickled cabbage?) I some time buy jars of Saurkraut when in a supermarket here , often find it in the aisle that sells Polish food items.

Like beer, it is a bit of an acquired taste. I usually eat it straight out of the jar with lots of tomato sauce or mayonaise over it to drown the taste. Saurkraut is supposed to be good for one, as it is full of vitimins and other nutrients. The problem I find with it, is around 30 minutes to an hour of consuming said stuff, it acts like an enema, and I have to delicately tippy toe to the kharzi for a really good clear out. Hmm, it really is good stuff if you are a tad constipated - like scrumpy cyder, it will 'unblock' many things... affraid 

So - should Saurkraut be cooked and mixed with other food items before consuming, and if so, will this reduce the 'enema' effect on one.....? bounce affraid .. and should it just be eaten a little bit at a time, rather than whole dollop?  drunken

Sounds like a question for one of our culinary experts but we've only got John Boy! Laughing  Maybe Ginger Jim will know - he was a big fan of Cookhouse Grub.

Here you go,

www.germanfoodguide.com/sauerkraut.cfm
However, if you are not used to the high amount of lacto-bacilli found in raw Sauerkraut, it can easily upset your stomach. For cooking suggestions, please see ...

That's what I thought but I did need to check before I posted....

I remember my Father, Peter Biggs, opening a jar of the stuff. We were all heaving and chucking up and he just laughed his socks off. Good memories.....thanks for that. Still don't like the stuff. Dad passed away in 2004, not because of the sauerkraut!

I like sauerkraut but the Polish version is not so acidic , a little bit sweeter than the German.

I was just having a little chuckle recalling the first time I (not then speaking any German) went to my girlfriends home for a meal, her Mother asked if I liked Kohlrouladen, I said "yes" but never had the foggiest Idea what was going to turn up on the table. Boy was I relieved when I finally saw them and identified the ingredients...

There's never an end to surprises I guess. I figured everyone in BAOR must have been exposed to the acidic delights of Germany's saline cole slaw at one time or other. I love a couple of spoonfulls of it with bockwurst or bratwurst (for that matter any kind of wurst) along with a generous dollop of Coleman's mustard. (That's the kind you mix out of the tin yourself). Oh yes - and lots of Warsteiner Beer.
As an aside, the Koreans make the same sort of fermented cabbage, only they add a lot of hot spices for your added late evening enjoyment and call it kimchee.

Sauerkraut with kaisler (probably wrong spelling) a smoked pork chop. Was a really good meal with a side of fried potatoes. A glass of Iserlohn pilsner and all was right with the world.

Moin Hardrations and those who served in Iserlohn/Hemer

Iserlohn Pils is no more...RIP!

Google translation from the German press

The end of the private brewery Iserlohn is approaching: insolvency Dirk Andres announced to employees on Friday that production will already ceased at the end of the month, also notices were submitted. What remains is the hope of a miracle.

If not a miracle, until 31 March, the last fresh bottle Iserlohn Pilsener is left in Green Valley, the site of the private brewery Iserlohn and experience the company in the 113th year of its existence, its business end. In a staff meeting insolvency administrator Dr. Dirk Andres has notified the remaining 53 employees that production is set at the month end. At the same time the employees termination was submitted for countersigning the same date. "There was not a breath of hope more noticeable," said a dejected later Chairman of Ralf Treske against the local newspaper.

Sad news production was restored by the Brits in 1945!

That is out standing bad news. All though I no longer drink, it will be of great disappointment to many of those in the RCA, Armoured, and PPCLI and Queens Own who served  in Deilinghofen/Iserlohn.

Rest In Peace Iserlohn Pils

One German food I really liked many years ago was pomme frites mit curry sauce. Not sure if you can get made up curry sauce for potato chips in supermarkets today, anyone have any ideas.....?

Here in Winnipeg, we can buy genuine German curry sauce for that Curry Wurst and Pom Frit at a German deli on Portage Ave (across from the RCMP H.Q's for Manitoba). I would think that any good grocery store in the UK would stock it. I've heard it mentioned.

Before we could get it here, I would make my own. My wife says she prefers my brand.

i never saw curry dishes in any pub or restaurant in germany , only real german grub , come to think of it curry was never served up by our slopjockeys either , no curry wurst , just bratwurst etc , and the german folk were all blond aryans , no turks or asians in those days ,

Whilst not strictly "Grub", I'm still enjoying a glass or two of DAB.
Still obtainable from the "Bargain Booze" outlets.

Still hankering for some Herforder though!

Never had the pleasure of Iserlohn Pils! We all had our favourite, depending where one served.

Maybe someone could explain the taste? Is it like XXXX Pils?
