This recipe is courtesy of Rita’s oldest grand-daughter who lives in the Swabian village of Talheim, near Heilbronn in South Germany. Madita cooks this regularly for her family and she sent her “Oma” the recipe via WhatsApp. Rita prepared it the other day and it was “lecker”! Here’s how to make it…
