Brot Pudding

Brot Pudding

In Swiss German the Aaschnitt, or end of the bread, is called something different in practically every region of the country. It is a word commonly used to show the extreme variety in regional terms throughout the German speaking realm. Regardless of what you call it, it makes great bread pudding. 

Tannen Granola

Tannen Granola

I really wanted to like tannen syrup. I had never tried it before and it's thick and amber and smells like Christmas. It seemed so alpine and wholesome that I felt sure I would love it. I spread it thickly onto a piece of Zopf, breathed deeply (O Tannenbaum!) and took a bite. It tasted like an alpine meadow in bloom. It didn't taste like Christmas at all.  

 So, I decided that I needed to do something else with the rest of the jar, namely granola.
