Sorbian Krautmauke – Prampany kal

Ein einfaches, schmackhaftes Löffelgericht

Cabbage maw is a simple dish for every day. Red cabbage and potatoes are cooked, stirred and get crispy fried bacon or ham bacon as a topping. Classically eaten with a spoon. The term “mauke” is used to describe a mush. On one or the other, this potato-blue cabbage mixture may seem a bit of an acquired taste. But it tastes excellent and is prepared quickly.

The Sorbs are a population group in eastern Germany and live in Lower and Upper Lusatia. (Federal States of Brandenburg and Saxony). Very well known is mostly the region Spreewald in which traditionally a lot of vegetables are grown. The Sorbs have their own language, their own traditions such as the “bird wedding”, decorate wonderful Easter eggs and of course have their own recipes. This also includes the jacket potatoes with cottage cheese and linseed oil.
