There is actually a sauerkraut strudel! The first one, though, was created in Vienna in 15th century, as the wave of Ottoman Empire conquests brought with it Turkish baklava, among other exotic foods. Crafty Viennese literally twisted the Turkish dessert, filled it with apples, and thus the famous Wiener Apfelstrudel was born.

The one that became a part of our Rosh Hashana celebration is a Plum Prune Strudel,  filled with jam, or prune butter, made of Italian Prune Plums, sometimes also called European plums. In Russia and Ukraine they are known as Hungarian plums, and every summer all of us kids were sent up…

    I never in my life had Sauerkraut-Strudel. My grandfather in the past only one day provides “Buttermilk-Soup” to me. Was a really shoking experience in the age of 7 years. 😉 Michael

    1. I’ve seen Sauerkraut Strudel, but wasn’t inclined to try. A buttermilk soup could be either Greek or Bulgarian, and it’s called Tzatziki. It’s delicious and very refreshing during the summer. It’s also used as a dip or a sauce with various appetizers.
