German Cuisine

Germany is known for its quality beer, delicious sausages, and mouth-watering Apfelstrudel.

But have you sampled the other side of German cuisine? Behold. German cocktail weenies and Cheese Crack...




[via]

But just when we thought it couldn't get any wurst worse, Infomaniac presents "Tote Oma"...



Translated into English as "DEAD GRANDMA," Tote Oma consists of minced blood sausage fried with onions and bacon (recipe may vary according to regional preferences.) This dish is also known as “Verkehrsunfall” or "TRAFFIC ACCIDENT."

Guten Appetit!

    Sorry. You have a can of Blaue Zipfel at hand ?

    Tote Oma is made from Pinkel (the wurst, not the vegetable). Or Hackgrütze. Teheee ... no you do not want to know what is in it.
    One could have some Bubespitzle aside & a Nonnenfürzle for dessert. Or Katzenzungen - but they are damn tiny and it's really a Gfret to rip them out each and single.

    1. MAGO: When you say the word “Hackgrütze,” it sounds like you’re coughing up a furball.

      Apparently, “Bubespitzle” means “boy’s little tip.” Let’s not explore that any further.

    2. Also called Schupfnudeln or Dràdewixpfeiferl.

      Hackgrütze and all the similar stuff done properly by your local butcher (who knows the name of the swine he kills and turns into sausage) is less disgusting as what comes out of a can, wurst-shaped. The big meat factories use basically anything of the animals, be it cattle, chicken or swine. So I stay with the green side dishes and the Perlis and skip the cocktail-(!)-Würscht'l.

  5. And further north than Germany, there is "Lappkok: This charmingly-named concoction consists of blodpalt--a dumpling made with reindeer blood and wheat or rye flour--served with reindeer bone marrow."

    Bloody hell! Jx

    2. Darling - at least we don't have chips covered in the solid parts of soured milk and gravy! I think I'd prefer "dead Granny". Jx

    3. JON: Cheeky bitch.

      MAGO: I saw NORMA smuggle a Saumagen out of the Infomaniac Grocery Store between her legs.
