This recipe is from Fredericksburg, TX which was settled in the 1840's by Germans who came over with a German prince who wanted to establish a colony in the New World. After a few years the prince got bored and returned to Europe, but his fellow Germans stayed behind. This was printed in a cookbook published on the 125th anniversary of Fredericksburg. You can also use weinkraut, which I would, but Recipezaar has never heard of it.
