I also learned that it's INSANELY GOOD.
Yum! And adding raspberry syrup makes it even better.
schnapps - another german word? ;-)
hey, theres gotta be a reason I don't know this ;-)
just en.wikipedia knows it, and google says its "german style schnapps" :-]
hm, its Scharlachberg, not burg which would be scarlet-mountain instead of -castle.
these guys: firstname.lastname@example.org
are in fact researching wo the actual importer to the US is, and where precisely its manufactured.
they even called the guys in Scharlachberg and got the reply that its not from them.
oh, and its got a facebook page?
oh, it seems as if its manufactured in canada:
Rumple Minze is a liqueur, which probably classifies it as an American style schnapps. It is 100 proof and very tasty. :)
The schnapps we have here are about twice as strong as in Germany. 100 proof = 50% alcohol by volume. There it is much lower....like 20-30%. Most of what you get tastes like cough syrup. The older I get the more I hate the sweet stuff. The more I apreciate subtle flavors...single malt whiskey. Pity I can't afford the real good stuff. The best bargain in single malt is Tomatim..about $24. My favorite so far is "the Dalmore Cigar Malt", which they don't make anymore.
Any other time, a nice single malt would be quite enjoyable indeed.
Wouldn't know anything about those.
...said the spider to the fly...
Artichokes steamed in a rice cooker with homemade hollandaise sauce and angel-hair with a lemon-caper-mushroom-white wine-butter sauce, complemented with a white reisling and and a walnut dark-chocolate bark.
I think I just took 10 years off my life - and it was completely worth it!
It's kind of a combination steamer/pressure cooker. I don't know the science behind it, but I can tell you that I have steamed both on the stove and using a regular steamer - but neither of those have provided such flavorful veggies or fish. I also use it for stews, soups, and quinoa with great results. One of the best $30 kitchen tools I've ever bought.
In keeping with the tradition of making dothebart say "hey look, another German word" ...
Today (and yesterday too) I made Bauernfrühstück for breakfast.
Matzoh ball soup (well Kreplach's were made too)
long grain wild rice
vegetable medley (carrots, peppers, squash, onion, broccoli)
and then dessert.
Guest stayed until midnight.
We'll call that a win.
But were there cooookies?
(literal translation) = "Country Breakfast"
What, exactly, is in said breakfast dish?
