(This German expression is a rather rude one... but means only Food)
1-1.5 kg white cabbage
2-3 french rolls
1/4 l milk

250g minced meat
2-3 large onions
a little amount of bacon

Chop white cabbage coarsly, boil shortly in salt water and pour into a sieve. Cut the french rolls in small pieces and soak in milk. Mix thoroughly minced meat, cut bacon, finely minced onions, soaked rolls and cabbage. If necessary, add a bit of the water in which the cabbage was boiled. Put the mixture in a soufflee form, sprinkle some flour and butter flakes over it. Bake for 1 - 1.5 hours in the oven.


Lumpen und Fleeh
(Rags and Fleas)
1 head white cabbage
pork or mutton without bones
lots of cumin
salt, pepper to taste
Put the ingredients together in a pan and cook a hearty stew.
Note: The name of the dish comes from the fact that the cumin seeds jump like fleas in the pan when the stew is cooked. It is said that a local patriot from Kassel (where the dish originated) has mentioned the suspicion, that some Irish people brought it to
Ireland and made it famous as Irish Stew.
(Potato Pancakes)
2 pounds potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 large onion, quartered
1/2 cup milk
vegetable oil
1/2 - 1 cup flour (use 1/2 cup flour with drier
potatoes; up to 1 cup with more watery
2 teaspoons salt
2 eggs
Grate potatoes and onion into a bowl. Add milk, then stir in flour, salt, and eggs. Mix well. In a large, heavy skillet heat 1/2 inch frying oil until hot. Drop potato batter (1/4 cup per pancake) into skillet and fry until golden brown and crisp on both sides. Drain on a paper towel. Serves 4-6.
