10 cloves
2 teaspoons black peppercorns, crushed lightly
4 parsley sprigs
2 bay leaves

Strain the cooking liquid and skim off the fat. Transfer 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid to a saucepan, bring to a boil, and stir in the gingersnaps and the remaining liquid, a little at a time, stirring. Boil the sauce, stirring, until it is thickened and add salt and pepper to taste. Slice the meat and serve it with the sauce and potato dumplings. Serves 4.

Rollmops

12 salt herring fillets
1 small bay leaf
1/4 cup mustard
2 cup cider vinegar
2 cup cold water
3 juniper berries
3 whole allspice
2 tablespoon capers, drained
3 whole cloves
3 medium-sized onions, peeled, thinly sliced
6 black peppercorns, bruised
3 large dill pickles
parsley sprigs

Place the herring fillets in a bowl and pour in enough water to cover them by about 1 inch. Soak them for at least 12 hours in the refrigerator, changing the water once or twice. Drain them well, rinse under cold running water and pat them dry with paper towels. Remove and discard any bones.

For the marinade, combine the vinegar, water, juniper berries, allspice, cloves, peppercorns and bay leaf in a 2- to 3-quart saucepan and bring them to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Then cool to room temperature. Lay the herring fillets, skin side down, on a board or table.

Spread 1 teaspoon of mustard evenly on each fillet and scatter 1/2 teaspoon of capers and several onion rings over the mustard. Cut the dill pickles lengthwise into quarters, if they are much longer than the width of the herring fillets, cut them crosswise into halves. Place a wedge of pickle at one narrow end of each of the fillets, and then roll the fillets jelly-roll fashion around the pickle into small, thick cylinders.

Skewer the rolls with 2 or 3 toothpicks to secure them. Pack the rolls flat on their sides in a 2-quart glass loaf dish in two layers with the remaining onion rings scattered between the layers and over the top. (Do not use a metal pan, for the fish may pick up a metallic flavor.)
Pour the marinade over the herring, then cover the dish with foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 5 or 6 days before serving. Serves 6

Cut the veal into steaks, about as thick as your finger. Dredge in flour. In a shallow dish, beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon oil, salt and pepper. Coat the veal with egg mixture, then with bread crumbs. Heat 1/4 cup oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Fry veal until golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side. Make 6 servings

All Saints' Day Strietzel

1-1/2 oz. yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1-1/4 cup warm milk
1/2 cup dried currants or raisins
4 tablespoons rum
2-2/3 cup flour
3/4 stick butter, plus butter for coating
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup minced hazelnuts
1 egg
1 pinch salt

In a bowl combine yeast with one tablespoon sugar and about 3/4 cup warm milk. Allow the mixture to ferment (approximately 15 minutes).Meanwhile rinse and drain the dried currants and soak them in rum. Melt butter. Blend well all ingredients into yeast mixture (butter, flour, remaining milk, sugar, egg, salt, hazelnuts, and rum-currants) and form into a dough.

Knead on a floured board until dough is elastic and no longer sticks to the board. Let covered dough rise in a warm place until double in bulk (at least 1-1/2 hours). Knead dough again and divide into three pieces. Roll pieces on floured board to an approximate length of 20 inches and braid them.

Place on a buttered baking sheet and let rise covered another 30 minutes. Brush with melted butter and bake in a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees about 25 minutes. Most delicious oven-fresh and coated with a powdered sugar glaze.
