READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Renate

A great side dish for roast's, tomato-, herb-, onion-, mustard-, and fruit sauces. I like it best with a pork roast or with stewed dried fruits.

Top Review by Grunig

They had great flavor, esp alongside the saurbraten I made. They fell apart during the cooking procress thnough . I think I lost most of the cornstarch by the end. May have been something I did though. I will definitely give it another shot!
