Breakfast of Champions # 73 – Schwäbisches Bauernfrühstück ( Swabian Farmers Breakfast )

Farmers Breakfast

:
:
If you wonder what constitutes a “Farmers Breakfast”, the answer is simple – anything that farmers usually, or often, ate for breakfast.
Keep in mind that in times past, this more often than not was food which did not have to be bought in stores (there was little or no cash, people ate what their farm produced or what could be bartered in exchange for the farms products). It also had to be very substantial, because it was the meal that mostly gave you energy during the whole day, especially during harvest season, when the farmers left in the morning to tend the fields and/or the animals. These days mostly stretched from dusk ´til dawn, and the only other meal during that time would be a small vesper of bread, cheese, sausage, water, cider or wine and an apple or a pear.
So, bread or potatoes and some form of protein, such as homemade bacon, ham and/or sausage, eggs, milk, cheese and sometimes coffee was the standard. Also, very often a simple porridge of any grain with bread on the side had to suffice at least a few times a week.

One of the “Bauernfrühstück” which old-fashioned farts like myself still appreciate these days is the dish featured on this page. It can be done with any protein, meat or pickled fish. Fish, of course, would be likely for farmers (or fisherman) living close to the sea, where livestock was not as widespread as on farms which were situated further inland. And in case one is not a fan of “Blutwurst” (Whats wrong with you ??? 🙂 , one can substitute with liverwurst, which is the perfect substitute in my opinion), as well as beef hash, spam, or any other pate/sausage which disintegrates when heated.
This dish is so tasty that it features in many restaurants in Bavaria, Swabia and especially in Austria and Tirol, where its name is “Gröstl” (there, it is usually served with a fried egg on top). I personally prefer the eggs mixed-in, but hey – shoot me. 🙂

” Old Fashioned Ice Cube Recipe “

>

Image: Igloo Ice Bournemouth

Two day’s ago the unthinkable happened :

My ice maker went to ice makers heaven     😦
After the initial shock and the ensuing mourning,
deep panic set in. Do I have to drink warm Ice tea  (“Warm Tea”)
until the technician has fixed or replaced my old Ice Magician ?
I am very opposed to buying the bagged ice from super markets or
gas stations, somehow the price and apparent lack of sanitation
prevents me from finding any appeal in putting this stuff in my drinks.
(Boiling it to sanitize does not seem to be a solution ?)
So, I set out to re-conquer the lost art of artisanal ice making.
In the very back of the garage where we store our ancient cooking utensils
and cooking equipment I found a couple of clear plastic ice trays, obviously
never used and still in their original plastic wrapping.
So for a while, I pondered about the recipe which was locked out of sight
for so many years in the bowels of our build in electric ice maker.
After much research and experimenting, I settled for the following recipe
which I selflessly like to share with you, hoping it will give you as much
pleasure and satisfaction as it has given me during the past few day’s.
Here it goes, I present  with with unrestricted, understandable pride :

” Royal Ice Cubes

Equipment :

Freezer or freezer part of your refrigerator
Ice tray

Ingredient’s :

Dihydrogen Monoxide,  (H2O),   sometimes also called “Water”

Method :

Fill ice tray’s to 4/5 with water, carefully transfer to freezer.  X
Freeze dihydrogen monoxide for several hours until frozen solid.
Remove ice cubes from tray as needed.

Cheers !  Life is Good !

X   Be care full not to spill water on floor, as this can result in a slip,
which can result in a fall, which can result in you hitting your head
on a hard surface, which can result in considerable damage to your brain,
which would be a shame but has probably happened to many of the folk’s
who display  increasingly strange behavior around us.
.

p.s.
My handyman replaced the ice maker and thing’s are back to a less dangerous daily routine.
I do not remember if there was a slip / fall / brain damage incident         🙂
