Heaven and Earth/Himmel und Erde


Heaven and Earth/Himmel und Erde
Apples from heaven and potatoes from the earth are often combined in Germany. Though it is usually accompanied by blood sausage or liver, this is a filling meatless main course all on its own. It would be excellent with green beans or green peas as a side dish.


        1 large onion

        1 tbsp. butter or margarine

        2 c. prepared applesauce

        2 c. prepared mashed potatoes*

        ½ tsp. salt

        1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper.

*This combination can be made with homemade, frozen, or instant mashed potatoes.


Step 1:
Slice onion in thin slices.

Step 2:
Heat butter in a medium saucepan. Fry onion slices in the butter, stirring frequently.

Step 3:
Stir applesauce into onion slices. Cook 5 to 10 minutes, stirring often, to thicken applesauce.

Step 4:
Stir mashed potatoes into apple mixture. Cook until steaming hot. Season with salt and pepper.
