Elisen gingerbread

The large proportion of nuts (at least 25%) is the reason for Elisen gingerbread being so juicy and delicious. You can also conjure up delicious gingerbread for the Christmas season with our recipe suggestion.

Ingredients (for approx. 20 pieces):

  • 50g candied lemon peel
  • 100g marzipan
  • 150g ground almonds
  • 150g sugar
  • 30g flour
  • 10g cinnamon
  • 10g gingerbread spices
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 10g cocoa
  • 1 knife tip ammonium bicarbonate
  • 4 egg whites
  • water
  • baking wafers
  • Chocolate coating or sugar icing

Preparation:

Chop candied lemon peel finely and pick or grate the marzipan.
Add the ground almonds, sugar, flour, cinnamon, gingerbread spices and salt to the candied lemon peel and marzipan. Sieve the cocoa powder and ammonium bicarbonate and add the egg whites.
Mix everything together with your electric whisk. If 
the dough is too dry, add  a few drops of water, so that it has a creamy and soft consistency.
Fill the dough in a piping bag with a big noozle and screw on the bag.
Spread the gingerbread dough evenly on the baking wafers. Don‘t leave space at the margins because the Elisen gingerbread rises during the baking process. Before baking, let the gingerbread dry at room temperature until the surface is no longer sticky.

Bake the gingerbread in the preheated oven at 180°C (E-oven) for approx. 15 minutes. They shouldn‘t be too dark so that they are still juicy inside. Afterwards let them cool off and glaze them with tempered chocolate coating or sugar icing.
Tip: The homemade gingerbread can be kept fresh up to 2 or 3 weeks in a sealed box. Instead of ground almonds you can also use hazelnuts or walnuts.

Christmas goose

Do you already know what you intend to cook on Christmas Eve? The Christmas goose is a Christmas dinner and is traditionally served at Christmas in the German speaking area. In the following there is a recipe suggestion how you can prepare your Christmas goose this year:

Ingredients:

  • 1 goose (approx. 3 – 4kg)
  • 1 onion
  • 300g apples
  • 100g dried apples
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • some mugwort
  • salt & pepper

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 165°C. Remove the remaining quills with a fishbone remover. Remove the wings and keep them for the sauce. Remove the offals if the goose is not ready to cook. Peel the onions and chop them coarsely. Cut the fresh apples into slices and put them together with the onions and dried apples in a bowl. Season the chopped fruits and vegetables heavily with cinnamon, mugwort, salt and pepper. Fill the goose with the cinnamon-fruit-vegetables-mixture and seal it with a skewer. Season the outside of the goose heavily with salt.
Place the goose with chest up in a roaster and put it in the oven for 3 hours. Pour 500ml water over the goose after 30 minutes. Afterwards pour the gravy over the goose with a ladle every 30 minutes.

Stay healthy during the Christmas season!

The most important tip: Stay active! Take a winter walk with your family or friends. Get your blood circulation going. For example get up earlier half an hour in the mornings to have a little walk.

Cook creative and healthy food!  Especially in the Christmas season you see everywhere delicacies, which you can‘t resist. Nevertheless there are many delicious meals which can be prepared with fresh food and even so they taste great! Sugar, for example, can be replaced by coconut sugar.

Make sure that you drink enough water! If you don‘t drink enough water, your body can confuse thirst with hunger.  It‘s therefore very important to drink enough water throughout the day. Liquids can also support your digestion and reduce bloated feeling, especially after you have eaten much food.

But the MOST important thing:
Enjoy the Christmas season consciously and take time to relax! Take a short break of the stress of everyday life! Stay cheerful and healthy during the Christmas season!

Christmas Donation

Worldwide, 385 million children live in extreme poverty, 30 million are refugees, and more than 260 million have no access to education. In spite of these daunting numbers, we still firmly believe that we – and that means every single one of us – can make the world a better place. And this is why the Memmert Christmas donation this year will again support projects for helping the youngest and weakest among us.
