today it is Sauerkraut and cooked pears. It could be a typical Dutch dish, or it is a typical German dish...not sure. But the dutch eat a lot of sauerkraut in wintertime

And another recipe for our Jamily cookbook!! :mrgreen: Is it a sweet and salty dish??
Really don't know anything about Dutch food... except Gouda! :lol:
I think Sauerkraut is Choucroute in France... and I thought it was a German dish but my friends told me it was an Alsacian dish just last week!! :?: :?: So who is right, who??? :lol:

you are right Miss Lisa, it's choucroute in france. according to Wikipedia it is originaly from China or Mongolia and is eaten mostly in the east of Europe. Yes, Google is my friend :mrgreen:
It is actualy my least favorite vegetable and this is a recipe for children, sweet and sour together. With a thick layer of Gouda on top, I can eat anything :D

sauerkraut is the vegetable cabbage, just pickled, right?

I only like it on a Reuben sandwich with lots of Thousand Island dressing!

So you inspired me StormeyG...those desserts looked delicious and festive! But it got me craving brownies. So I looked in my cupboard for ingredients. Only had white cooking chocolate so I found a recipe for white chocolate brownies and substituded orange extract in place of the vanilla extract that they called for. And used chopped almonds instead of macadamias. Turned out very nice! :) not as pretty as those though

Hope my translation is right or at least understandable!

Berry-Cherry-brownies

200 grams butter
200 grams extra pure chocolate 72%, chopped
4 eggs
1 bag of vanilla-sugar
300 grams soft white sugar
200 grams of almonds chopped roughly
150 grams of dried cranberries
1 pot of pitted cherries (350 grams drained)
100 grams flour
icing sugar
cake pan (20 x 25 cm or 8 inch x 10 inch)
baking paper

1) Pre-head the oven to 180 C or 356 F
Cover the cake pan with baking paper.
Melt the butter together with the chocolate at low heat (fire?)
2) beat the eggs, vanilla-sugar, soft white sugar in a bowl, so it becomes airy
Mix the butter and chocolate through the egg-mixture and add the almonds, cranberries en cherries. Mix the flour in and add pinch of salt.
3) poor the batter in the cake pan and put it in the middle of the pre-headed oven for 35-40 minutes, then let it cool for 1 hour. Take the brownie out of the pan and slice it in cubes and cover it in icing sugar

Uhuu! some other good ideas for Christmas and New Year! :mrgreen:
Ooooooh brownies... :cry: It's been too long since I haven't made that... I actually don't really have time to cook...Roll on the holidays!! (only a week to go before... :mrgreen: )
The pudding is "elegant" if I can say that...Just imagine it on your Christmas table... it manages to cause a bit of a stir, for sure!! :lol:
