    I don't mean to butt in here, but I've been to the La Crosse, Wisconsin Octoberfest. (Used to live there!) This was the best city 'party' I've ever been to...year after year! Thanks for the memories. The recipes sound great! I can't wait to try Twinkle's recipe for the Rouladen...one of my favorite foods! Trish

    I've had the Sauerbraten at Karl Ratzsch's in Milwaukee, Wisconsin...a famous German restaurant. It was heavenly. This is their recipe that is from their chef. I have not tried making this myself, but I thought I'd post for you. Trish

    Karl Ratzsch's Sauerbraten

    Chef John Poulos presents a sauerbraten entree at Karl Ratzsch's restaurant, 320 E. Mason St.

    4 pounds beef (rump, chuck or sirloin)
    2 tablespoons salt (divided)
    1 cup red wine vinegar
    1 cup white wine vinegar
    2 cups cold water
    1 onion, sliced
    1 rib celery, cut coarsely
    1/4 cup mixed pickling spice
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    2 tablespoons drippings or lard
    6 to 8 gingersnap cookies, softened in a little water
    2 tablespoons sugar
    Equal parts of flour and water to thicken


    Rub meat with 1 tablespoon salt and place it in crockpot or deep container (not aluminum). Combine vinegars, water, onion, celery, pickling spice and garlic. Pour over meat and marinate in cool place for 48 hours, turning twice daily.

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    To roast, remove meat from crock. Heat drippings in roasting pan and sear meat on all sides. Pour marinade over meat and cover. Roast, covered, in preheated oven 20 to 30 minutes per pound, basting occasionally. Remove cover during last 20 minutes of roasting time and baste again.

    Remove meat to warm platter and strain marinade into heavy kettle. Bring to boil and simmer. Add softened gingersnaps, 2 tablespoons sugar and remaining 1 tablespoon salt. Thicken to desired consistency with roux. Adjust seasonings and sugar. Slice across the grain and serve with gravy. Good with potato dumplings, buttered noodles or stewed prunes.

    Hallo Alle, just peeking in.

    Texas, so sorry just leaving you hanging out by your self. Whoopee, I am proud of you for jumping on the soapbox. I agree, most of them reporters are just showoffs so they can get their names up in lights.

    Good topic and idea. Sorry about the heat, I talked with my cousin there about 8 PM and she had my Uncle and Aunt there with her and she said the AC just doesn'e quit running.

    Yes, Ericka, My DW told me to reset the answering machine but do not answer it. Yesterday they called about 5 times and my DW did not call back. In fact she told me that her payday is this Wednesday and she was trying to figure out a way to sneak in and get it and leave before someone saw her. Smile. She makes me proud of her. (Sometimes) I keep telling her she does not owe them anything.

    Hi Twinkle, I saved the best for last. You go make this beautiful list of places to visit for Oktober Fest and you leave out one of the best ones. It was just the place I just visited on my last trip.

    Hermann, Missouri. You got to check out the first site, it will get your toe a tapping.

    Danke, Twinkle for posting.

    The Wurst Fest in New Braunfels, Texas is also in October. I have never been but Texas can tell you more. I heard there is just way to many people there for that small town.

    Zurick zu bett, Ich muessen yetz meine schoenheit ruhe abkriegen. Laechein. Ich hoffen das ausheifen.

    Recipe of the Month: October 2005
    Party Canapés (Party- Häppchen)
    Find more recipes in our Recipe of The Month archives

    If you like to make formal canapés, you'll find many German products ideal for shaping into dainty bite-sized finger food. Thinly sliced cold meats are easy to fold or roll; cheeses can be cut into neat squares or rounds; Vollkorn, rye and Pumpernickel breads can be stamped into shapes using small pastry cutters; Quark is ideal for flavoring and piping into swirls, while pickles and relishes are idea as toppings and garnishes. It's all so easy!

    Remember to keep the canapés (called Häppchen in German) bite-sized so that each canapé can be popped into the mouth quickly. Garnishes should be subtle

    Here are some serving suggestions:

    Cold Canapés


    Pumpernickel rounds with Matjes herring flakes, thinly sliced onion, cooked shrimp, mayonnaise and dill garnish

    Toasted light rye bread with lettuce shreds, smoked salmon with horseradish cream and caviar
    Rye bread with Emmentaler cheese and chopped black grapes

    Pumpernickel rounds with Emmentaler cheese, cucumber, Quark, topped with fresh herbs and thin red onion slices

    Cocktail pretzels with thinly sliced Bavarian blue cheese

    Rounds of toast with folded and rolled slices of Black Forest ham, topped with green asparagus tips

    Cherry tomato shells filled with piped Quark and topped with finely chopped chives and tiny herb sprigs


    Hot Canapés

    Prepare these ahead but don't heat until your guests are about to arrive. Otherwise, they will dry out if kept warm for too long
    Thin fresh apple slices (brushed with lemon juice), deep-fried Camembert wedges, topped with cranberry relish

    Baby potato pancakes (or Rosti) with hot pan-fried salmon filet

    Toasted triangles baked with shredded Black Forest han, pitted red grapes and grated Emmentaler cheese

    wiener schnitzel

    As the name of this dish suggests, "Wiener" shows it is actually native to Vienna, Austria, but is almost synonymous with German cuisine. We substituted pork loin for the traditional veal in our version.

    2 pounds pork loin, sliced 1/2 inch thick
    salt and pepper
    flour
    1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water
    bread crumbs
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    lemon wedges

    1. Wrap pork loin slices in plastic wrap. On a firm table or countertop, beat with a meat mallet to 1/2 its original thickness. Unwrap and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    2. Dip both sides in flour, followed by egg/water, then bread crumbs to coat evenly.
    3. Fry in hot oil, turning once, until browned on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
    4. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve hot with apple-onion sauce.
