Yum

Himmel und Erde (Heaven and Earth) is one of those wonderful German traditional recipes that goes so well as a main dish or a side. This is a mixture of mashed potatoes (from earth) and apples (from heaven). Often this is served with sausage or pork, but goes well with almost anything, even by itself because the flavors blend together unusually well.

Himmel und Erde is usually covered with caramelized or crispy fried onions. Not only does it look great, but it tastes scrumptious.

Oma's Himmel und Erde: Apples and Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb starchy potatoes
  • 1 lb cooking apples
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • nutmeg, salt, pepper to season
  • 1 - 2 onions, sliced
  • butter
Instructions:
  • Peel and cube potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Peel and thickly slice apples.
  • Cook potatoes and apples in boiling salted water until tender, about 10 - 15 minutes. Drain.
  • Mash until smooth and creamy, adding butter. Season with salt, nutmeg, and pepper.
  • Meanwhile, fry onion slices in about 2 Tbsp butter (or oil) until crispy.
  • Serve onions on top of mashed mixture either as a main or side dish.

"Heaven and Earth" is one of those comfort foods. Even though I haven't made baby food for years, I can imagine this would be a favourite - minus the onions of course! And what child doesn't love mashed potatoes or applesauce?

Now, I have to admit my children missed out on this. This is something my Mutti never made and therefore I didn't know about it until I came across it in a German magazine. It sounded a bit strange, but I gave it a try nevertheless. Yummy!

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
