Of Apples and Potatoes

Just a brief word today, to direct you to my guest post for Claire, at Promenade Plantings.

Apple sauce is something that brings back memories of childhood… finishing the sauce after a roast pork dinner was always my “responsibility”! I haven’t eaten meat or fish for many years now, and certainly do not miss it, but I do sorely miss the sauces that traditionally accompany it. Therefore I embrace any possibility to integrate them into a vegetarian diet. Pasta, peas and parsley sauce is one example. Potato cakes with apple sauce is another.

Please click and take a look at Promenade Plantings for my recipe for Reiberdatschi with Apple Sauce. And while you’re there, have a look at some of Claire’s wonderful posts such as this one on Social Gardening… excellent stuff!

(And any ideas for using mint sauce or mustard in a vegetarian diet would be more than welcome!)

  1. Thanks for SHARING now I am hungry and will settle for a banana, FF Cottage Cheese lol lunch with a new friend who will serve Turkey sandwich will have me full till dinner tonight in New England is Prince Spaghetti Day so we shall have pasta and yummy homemade sauce keeping it simple and tomorrow if the rain is not too bad I must visit the shore I miss her πŸ™‚ this time with bum leg and beat up dog we shall only WALK I know someone better tell the dog πŸ™‚

    It is Apple Season here in NH we have a local farm Applecrest who has been selling apples for 100 years and Maine is a state right beside ours who has wonderful potatoes so why do I not see this on local menus? My next foray will be a dinner to feed the masses πŸ™‚

  2. Haven’t had apple sauce with potato cakes, but will be trying that now. We use Dijon mustard when we make vegetarian sausages – maybe this doens’t really count as having mustard with the sausages, but it’s great for adding flavour to the mix!

    • That’s a good idea – must try it next time I make sausages or burgers! Thanks! (I do mix dried mustard into cheese dishes too, for a bit of kick. πŸ˜‰ )

  3. That was one of our favorite dishes when we lived in Bavaria, so thanks for the recipe and the reminder. (My other favorite was the Christkindlmarkt waffles, washed down with hot amaretto and whipped cream. πŸ˜‰ )

    • Ooooh, hot Amaretto and cream…. haven’t had that for a while! They call it “heiße Liebe” here. Perfect for a cold evening! Thanks for your comment Robin!

  4. Cathy, you’ve done it again. Everything you cook looks delicious! I do love potatoes prepared this way and I can imagine the applesauce would be great with them. My grandmother used to fry apples in butter until they started falling apart–always a treat for us when we visited in the fall.

  5. I havenΒ΄t had Reiberdatschi with apple sauce in a long time. After reading your post I realized how much I missed it! Must go out and buy potatoes…:-) By the way they said yesterday on the radio that it was “World Porridge Day”.
