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.....

Just a quick note to those in Canada who have access to a Loblaw's or Canadian Superstore: They're offering those delicious Christmas Stollen again this year. They're the real thing, made by a bakery in Soest, my old home away from home, and feature a nice picture of the Marktplatz on the box, which almost makes it a Christmas card as well as a container.

For those on the other side of the pond: you can probably get them as well at Tesco or Sainsbury's, etc.

Guten apetit!

Like almost anything, if you pig-out on sauerkraut its going to give you (in this case) Belin Belly. A few spoonful's with a meal is great. However, I did find I like some bands more than others.

I really tried as much as I could over there and enjoyed most things, although there were one or two items I couldn't face.

Particular favourite of mine was roast horse. And out in Cyprus - roasted goat with local roast spuds.

It was the rabbit I had in Nicosia that was outstanding. And as you say the goat was good to.

I don't recall rabbit on any menu. In fact I don't think I saw a rabbit in the 6 months I was there - caged or wild. I would have thought they might have been around the abandoned Nicosia Airport, but since we used the perryway for compulsory runs (UN ruling) and, not being a 'natural' runner, I tended to be well at the back, they had no doubt gone to earth by the time I arrived!
I'm not a fish lover, but there used to be a small breeze block kitchen with an adjoining open sided thatched area right next to the harbour at lovely quiet coastal village of Aya Nappa. Fish was unloaded from the boats and went straight into the kitchen. It was delicious. This was '76. I saw Aya Nappa on TV back in the '90's I think - just all night clubs. Totally ruined....or is it a sign of old age?

Horse Shoe Bay was another place with a similar restaurant which produced absolutely first class grub. No electric there, but they had cold drinks. They used to bury large blocks of ice about 6'down and it stayed frozen. Just dug and hacked a lump off. Nowadays H&S would probably have kittens over that!

I was made to understand it was domestic rabbit, not wild. Something I learned to enjoy in Germany when posted there. Used to raise my own.

Rabbit cooked in various ways was something I grew up with, as my grandparents had a farm in Kent, and he went out weekly with his shotgun - usually Sunday. I thought he was a real marksman until I learned about shot spread.
However, it came to an abrupt end when myxomatosis was introduced and it was considered unsafe to eat rabbit from that point. I have to say that the suffering I saw would have put me off anyway.

I'm in Kyrenia at the moment, come out every year for a few months at a time. The Cyprus that we knew from "The good old days" has long gone, McDonalds, Burger King, Debenhams, M&S etc are all flourishing in the Malls here. Most cars are top of the range Mercs, Audi, BMW etc and the only rabbits for sale are in the sex shops! albino albino
