    Anyone heard of this type of Bavarian salad?

    My grandmother who is recently deceased used to make what she called Bavarian Salad every year for Thanksgiving. Several people in the family love it and I would like to suprise everyone and make it for this Thanksgiving. It seems really simple. I know she used beaf consume (beaf broth), broccoli and gelatin, it was made in a 9 x 13 inch glass pan, chopped cooked broccoli in first, then I guess she disolved the gelatin in the consume and poured over the broccoli and refridgerated. She may have added salt. It was a gel and cold when served and savory, not any sweetness, kinda like a beef jello with broccoli.

    I didn't care for it, but others liked it a lot. Thanks for any help icon_biggrin.gif

    Hmm, Sorry to hear about losing your grandmother.

    I haven't heard of anything like this personally. I tried to look online for you but only came up with "fruit" salads.

    Maybe your mom or someone in your family has an old cookbook from your grandmother where the recipe could be written in? That is the only thing I could think of at this very moment, but I will still keep a look out for you. icon_biggrin.gif

    Thankyou, it was expected so it wasn't a big suprise, thanks again.

    Actually, since I am the one in the family everyone else turns to for cooking advice I have all her cookbooks icon_biggrin.gif . It is so simple she probably doesn't have it written down. I am going to try to make it this weekend, I just need to figure out how much gellatin to use to make it firm but not rubbery.

    This is what I plan on doing. Blanch 1 pack of frozen chopped broccoli and placing into a 9 x 15 baking pan, heat 4 or 5 cans of beef consumme and disolving the gellatin then pour over the broccoli and cool in the fridg.

    I think that is it, really simple but I just don't know how much gellatin I will need for that much consumme, it needs to be able to stand on the plate when served, but not real wiggly like jello, any suggestions will be welcome, thanks icon_biggrin.gif

    I've tried to find a recipe, but I couldn't find an aspic-preserved recipe for only broccoli. In most recipes the main ingredient is seafood, meat or chicken.

    Do you have some more details? Can you remember any details. Was it only broccoli. Any other ingredient like hard-boiled eggs, other veggies. Did you grandmother has had a name for it.

    Maybe with more details I could find a recipe or an idea how to make it.

    Suelze is what this sounds like. A gellied meat broth salad with various veggies and often chunks of meat too.

    Think I found a recipe for you and am translating on the fly, so I wont be converting measurements. If you try the recipe and you like it, feel free to post it here on Recipezaar:

    Broccoli--Karotten Suelze

    24 grams plain gelatin
    400ml vegetable broth or beef broth
    1 lemon, juiced
    1 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
    100 grams carrots, cooked and thinly sliced
    150 grams fresh broccoli, chopped and cooked
    salt, to taste

    Dissolve the gelatin in the broth. Add lemon juice, parsley, and salt to taste. Line a loaf pan or square baking dish with plastic wrap. Place veggies in the pan, then pour liquid on top. Cover and chill at least 2 hours or until firm. Unmold and cut into slices to serve.

    Hey, thanks yall! I really appreciate your help icon_biggrin.gif Thorsten, my Grandmother simply called it Bavarian Salad. That is probably why I had a hard time finding a recipe for it, there are simular recipes but they are called Broccoli Salad Mold.

    Well I tried to make it and it didn't turn out right, it was missing something, I never cared for it so I didn't eat it much, I was wanting it to be a suprise for the people who love it, my Aunt being one but I had to call her and ask.

    It turns out I was missing an ingredient, there is mayonnaise mixed in with it. My Aunt wasn't exactly sure but she told me the ingredients she remembered and I took it from there. I made it again and once I saw the dirty white color of it and the bits of broccoli I realized that it was right on the money. It is still a simple recipe:

    1 can beef consumme
    1 10 oz package of frozen broccoli
    3/4 cup of mayo
    1 packet of Knox original unflavored gelatin
    1/4 cup of water

    Cook broccoli according to package, drain and cool, sprinkle gelatin over 1/4 cup of cold water, bring consumme just to a boil and remove from heat, and pour gelatin in stirring for 3 or 4 minutes. I allowed to cool to warm and added the broccoli and mayo, mix well, blending mayo in and pour into a small mold or 9 x 9 pan and chill.

    It turned out exactly like her dish. icon_biggrin.gif This is a dish that either you love it or you don't, at our Thanksgiving dinners 1 - 9 x9 inch pan is enough for the people who love it, the rest of us don't eat it.

    Thanks again to everyone, I can now make it for our feast icon_biggrin.gif

    That is interesting. Did your grandmother have had some relations to Germany? Is it a family recipe. I've never heard of such kind of salad, but thta doesn't mean a thing. Only that it is not one of a big traditional recipe from Bavaria (think I would have known it then icon_biggrin.gif). Sounds intersting, although I would never combine mayo and gelatine.

    I'm happy that at last you have made it. icon_biggrin.gif

    Now that you have the recipe, you should post it here on Zaar in the database so others can try it and give you a review. And more importantly will always have the recipe available icon_smile.gif
