Bockwurst and fried kartoffle this evening. Bockwurst from the German Deli. They make the best with hice senf.

My German spelling is probably wrong, and I'm to lazy to get my good frau to check it out. But you know what I mean.

Forgot to mention that on my recent trip to the Rhineland was introduced to a Pear schnapps (a local speciality apparently), the effect on my mouth was similar to drinking battery acid. Thank heavens up north that Dortmunder or Herforder Lager or Holsten Pils was the alcoholic drink of choice, One disappointment was that I never had the chance of sampling a traditional Schnitzel.

I always felt that a good schnaps was the kirsh schnaps. A friend of mine in Germany, his father made his own. Out standing stuff. Still though have to agree with you JPW a good German beer was the choice, in my case Iserlohner Pilsner up north of Huf Heisen (Spelling wrong but it was Horse Shoe in English).

Thoroughly endorse your comments regarding Kirschwasser.

Had a slice of genuine Schwartzwald torte the size of a brick. Delicious! especially as everything had been well and truly soaked in the magic liquid especially the remaining cherries.

Apparently it is legal to brew your own kirsch wasser down south. You only need a licence if you sell the product for money not if you barter it for goods or give it away as a gift

The way it was explained to me, was that you paid a tax or gave some some to govt. I remember seeing small distilleries in an old water wheel mill, a small jeans factor, a gasthof and a farm. I well remember the one in the gasthof in my village. I asked the owners son one day, who was making a batch of opps schnaps, when he knew it was ready. The answer was, " When I'm drunk". Made sense to me. (Opps schanps was all sorts of fruit in it and was known to me as panzer benzene or Spreingstoff ) I know my spelling is wrong but my good German wife is out and about.

Your Panzer Benzine looks like Rum topf to me. Regarding the kirsch wasser distilleries I got the impression that many people who owned a few cherry trees could and did brew their own hooch legally in their own back yard. The small distilleries you describe provided usefull income via the tourist trade.

No definitely not Rum Topf. This was schnaps with all sorts of fruit, apple, pear, peach, etc in the mash. I well remember Rum poured over fruit when in season then to be dished over ice cream in my case in reasonable amounts. Potent stuff it was, but no longer to be consumed by me.

The Ops schnapps was popular drink in the Black Forest where I lived.

I often holiday in a hotel in the Black Forest village of Kork. The owner makes his own booze and now and then gives it out free at breakfast and again at dinner. Comes round wearing a chef's hat and ringing a handbell, and carrying a large tray of drinks several times during the meal, each time with a different drink. Makes dinner quite interesting.....
