Last Saturday, we scheduled our spring house cleaning. As we are all from different parts of Germany, I decided to make a special dish from the region where I was born, the Oberlausitz .

Quark-Keulchen

What does it mean?

Quark [qvark] after Wikipediais a type of fresh cheese of Central European origin. Dictionaries usually translate it as curd cheese. It is soft, white and un-aged, similar to Fromage frais, but with a higher fat content.”
I usually buy it in our local food co-op
, sometimes I can find it in the organic sections at QFC.

Keulchen, comes from Keule, which is a cudgel, the ending chen indicates the diminutive form of it – still indicating the richness and heaviness of this delicious dish.
