Today I once again had a great desire for a favorite children's meal: green sauce! Once known as the "Frankfurt Green Sauce", you have to be hell-bent on using this term today unless you use the right ingredients. The term is now protected. For me, it's just "Mum's Green Sauce", so. As a native of Hessin, I grew up with Goethe's favorite food. Green sauce was also one of the first dishes I made myself as a kid. I still remember the Saturday market days when I bought the herbs with Mama. The gabs course harvest fresh and wrapped in paper at every greengrocer. This is something else here in the Rhineland, but at least this time of year (Maundy Thursday is off) you get here also the original herbal mixture. Only the following 7 herbs can be included: parsley, chives, chervil, sorrel, cress, pimpinelle and borage! Of course, in addition to the protected name there are umpteen different recipes, which should have been all original and all Goethe's favorite food. Who knows, maybe he would rather have something completely different. But it does not matter. I've been making my green sauce for nearly 20 years, just as Mama taught me (mom is actually an American, is ...

Goethe's favorite: green sauce

Today I had a big appetite for a favorite children's meal: Green Sauce!
Once known as the "Frankfurt Green Sauce", you have to be hell-bent today to use this term if you do not use the right sized ingredients. The term is now protected.
For me, it's just "Mom's Green Sauce", so.
As a native of Hessin, I grew up with Goethe's favorite food. Green Sauce was also one of the first dishes I made myself as a kid.

I still remember the Saturday Market Days when I'm with Mom bought the herbs. The gabs of course freshly harvested and wrapped in paper at every greengrocer.
This is something else here in the Rhineland, but at least this time of year (Maundy Thursday is off) you get here, too
Only the following 7 herbs are allowed: parsley, chives, chervil, sorrel, watercress, pimpinelle and borage!
the protected name tens of different recipes, which should have been all original and all Goethe's favorite food. Who knows, maybe he'd rather have something completely different.
But it does not matter. I've been making my green sauce for almost 20 years as Mama taught me (mom is actually American, but grew up in Hesse and I'm pretty sure the market woman had her fingers in the game and her favorite recipe for "Grie Soß "has divulged.
For 2 (hungry) to 4 (normalessende) persons:
2 hard-boiled eggs peel. Halve the eggs, squeeze the yolks out of the egg whites and place in a large bowl.
1 tbsp/b> add to the egg yolk and stir to a creamy porridge. Basically, you made your mayonnaise with it, but I'm decadent and add 1 El Mayo extra and stir it all up.
Add 2 cups (a 200g) of sour cream or sour cream (I prefer sour cream) and mix thoroughly.
1 large gherkin Dice and mix very finely.
1 bunch of green sauces herbs (also available in TK) finely chop and stir in.
Finely chop the egg whites and mix in the sauce
Season with salt and pepper .
I like to eat green sauce puree with boiled potatoes.
If I'm in my old home but I also like to go to the Tafelspitz.
A great easy dish that I really like to mate completely and then eat lukewarm. Like a kid.

Have I really never published my pancake recipe yet? Apparently not. Then it will be high time. Today is such a wonderful summer day in spring and that's why my classic pancakes came out again. Of course in the sun on the terrace. To make real fluffy pancakes is actually very easy and here I like it also classic and simple. There are many varieties with sour cream, buttermilk, etc., but my favorit...

a fresh loaf of bread cools after the Baking from

I admit, I'm an absolute late bloomer when it comes to cooking trends. Except maybe for cupcakes, I was there early. Otherwise, I usually do what I feel like and look for my own meals together. Often, following trends is not really mine and I'd rather do something my own. This is also a thing with mobile phones. It was time for a contract extension and I wanted to have a new phone with buttons tha...

After a few vacation-related absence days, I'll get back to you with a short travel report! What do you do on vacation? Of course, eat well! I have relatives in Barcelona and travel since infancy to this beautiful city on the Mediterranean. For me, there are no more typical tourist visits, but it is more of a "come home" and I know exactly where I want to go and what I want to do. This year, it wa...

For some time now it's time again and you get fresh organic wild garlic in abundance. I love this versatile herb and its special taste. I've just covered myself generously with wild garlic, as you could already see with the wild garlic butter. Two or three weeks ago, during my lunch break, I had already eaten a very delicious wild garlic risotto from our lovely chef, without whom we would have bee...
