    Wild garlic (Allium ursinum, Bear’s garlic, or Bärlauch in German) is a wonderful chive cousin and is a very popular European species of garlic. Wild garlic pesto can be used as alternative to basil pesto as addition to pasta, tomato sauces and much more. Pick up the leaves before it had bloomed as apparently the leaves get really bitter after that point. Wild garlic can be confused with Lily of the Valley, autumn crocus and arum which are poisonous. If you have any doubt about your plant, do not eat it. The easiest way to tell if you have wild garlic or not is just to pick a small bit of leaf and rub it between your fingers. In the USA, ramp (Allium tricoccum), a wild plant with more onion-like flavor, is used for similar purposes.

    I had these little sage fritters at a posh garden party in Switzerland, and they were delicious! I'm making them tonight for starters with the first big sage leaves from my balcony, and thought I'd share the recipe!

    Recipe #304051

    Recipe by Nick Malgieri: "You may be surprised to learn, however, that every year the Swiss city of Basel puts on an impressive three-day carnival bash called Fasnacht, in which its citizens party all night, watch fabulous parades and costumes, and indulge in the best in traditional food and drink. Baslers have been doing Fasnacht since the Middle Ages, but with a twist: After the Reformation, Protestant Basel moved its carnival to the Monday after Ash Wednesday, asserting its religious independence from Rome. Fastnacht gets underway at Morgestraich ("morning strike"), a thrilling moment to witness. People start milling around the city center's market square around 2 a.m., and you can feel the excitement and anticipation building. By 3:30 the square is as packed as Times Square on New Year's Eve. Precisely at 4, all the lights go out as a cry of celebration rumbles through the crowd. Then the faint sound of drums and piccolos wafts into the square as the fife, drum, and lantern-toting cliques, the official carnival societies, begin to converge from all sides. The pre-dawn darkness is illuminated only by the lanterns atop the drummers' and piccolo players' masks, though each clique also sports a single 5-foot high rectangular lantern depicting its yearly theme in words and pictures. As the day begins to dawn, the lights come back on and many head to a favorite restaurant or Kaeller (the cliques' private headquarters, open to the public during Fasnacht) for a fortifying meal. Delicacies include Maehlsuppe (brown flour soup), an unappetizing name for a really delicious onion soup; Kaeswaie or cheese tart (see recipe below); and Ziebelewaie or onion tart, first cousins of the quiche, only better. All that salty food needs to be washed down with plenty of beer, which flows more generously during Fasnacht than the Rhine, the storied river that divides Basel in half. Good Baslers look forward to Fasnacht every year to also eat Kiechli, a deep-fried pastry like a funnel cake covered with sugar, and Faschtewaie, a buttery roll sprinkled with caraway seeds. Later that day after everyone has had a fortifying nap, followed by much parading by cliques, their members decked out in fantastic get-up. Tuesday is Kinderfasnacht or children's carnival during the day, with fanciful costumes and lots of Kiechli. Tuesday evening, the cathedral square is the scene of the reading of the lanterns. Each clique writes satirical, sarcastic or critical verses on its main lantern. They may be about events in Basel, Switzerland or elsewhere in the world, but are always hilarious. Wednesday afternoon is another parade as on Monday, though throughout Fasnacht portions of cliques march around the city 24 hours a day, keeping the upbeat mood from flagging. Wednesday evening, as Fasnacht begins to draw to a close, there is the famous brass concert in the Barfuesserplatz. One player carries the melody and all the others play out of tune sending most observers for something a little stronger than Maehlsuppe! Fasnacht officially ends at daylight on Thursday, when the normally staid and formal Baslers return to work and their regimented daily lives."

    This is how the Aelplermagronen are prepared in the [Swiss] canton of Unterwalden. In Uri, the potatoes are left out.

    Recipe #455187

    Posted for ZWT II. This is adapted from a really nice Ohio cookbook that I received in a recent Zaar cookbook swap. I haven't tried this yet. Prep/cook time is a guess, and servings are an estimate because the original recipe is a little unclear about how big you are supposed to make the doughnuts.

    Recipe #171336

    This makes a delightful appetizer or accompaniment to any meal.

    Delicious Swiss jam cookies our family makes for Christmas. My father is from Switzerland, so I grew up with these yummy cookies. I apologize if the time and yield are slightly off; I generally make 2-4 batches at a time, so it takes an entire evening!

    Recipe #53092

    A simple, easy and delicious German and Swiss Christmas cookie from Oetker Baking is Fun. The weight measurements are how the original recipe was written. If you have a kitchen scale, I find it to be the quickest and most accurate way of measuring ingredient. NOTE: 1 package of Oetker vanilla sugar is equivalent to 1 to 2 tsp vanilla extract.
