Himmel und Erde with Mike
Himmel und Erde is a traditional German dish that translates to Heaven and Earth in English—potatoes from Earth and apples from Heaven. This recipe is comforting and easy! Mike will walk you through it during this week’s demo.
• 4 medium potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
• 2 large tart apples, sliced (Granny Smiths are good here)
• 1 tablespoon sugar
• 4 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
• 1 medium onion, sliced
• 1 tablespoon butter, softened
• 1?8 teaspoon nutmeg
Heat 1-inch water to boiling; add potatoes, apples and sugar; heat to boiling, reduce heat, cover and cook until tender, about 10 to 15 minutes; drain. Fry bacon until crisp; drain on paper towels; cook and stir onion in bacon fat until soft and lightly browned. Place potatoes and apples in a serving bowl; dot with butter, salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with nutmeg; top with bacon and onion and serve. Alternatively, you can boil the potatoes and apples, then fry them in a little bit of oil to get them browned and crispy then mix with all the other ingredients.
