Another delicious German recipe I was given to from a German housewife.
While visiting my son,in Germany in the Air Force in 1970.
He,his wife Deb and son Mark, rented an off base up-stairs apartment from a German farm family. They lived downstairs, and she graciously gave me a few of her recipes.
Now you will have them.
