This package gives you the chance try Karen’s four best-selling kuchen: Juneberry, Peach, Strawberry Rhubarb, and Triple Berry.
What is a Kuchen (Koo-Ken)? Somewhere between a cake, pie, and custard, Kuchens came to North Dakota from Germans from Russia and are objectively better when made by a grandma.
Karen Schwandt, who is the namesake, brains, and heart behind the Karen’s Kuchens, credits her success to Grandma Steam. Schwandt describes this as her “German stubbornness and determination to get something done on time” as well as the desire honor her Mother and her heritage by producing this German ethnic food the Old World way.
The Old Way is to say “I love you” with food. With a special treat like kuchen, the tradition lives on.
This package serves 24-36 people and includes 4 Kuchens
- Each Kuchen serves 6-8 people and measures 8"
- Juneberry – Fresh frozen juneberries added to a creamy custard and sprinkled with sugar. Juneberries are a cousin to Blueberries but are more woodsy as most of them grow wild. Juneberries have an almond nutty taste to them. They are called Sassatoons or spring berry in Canada.
- Peach – Fresh frozen peaches layered in creamy custard and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
- Strawberry Rhubarb – This one is always sold out first at Farmers Market. A sweet tangy taste all at one time. Rhubarb picked locally and fresh frozen strawberries used. Sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
- Triple Berry – A combination of Blackberrys, Blueberries, and Raspberry. Too pretty to eat kuchen. But a delightful blend of berries. Karen’s nieces’ favorite.
Basic Ingredients: flour, cream, eggs, sugar, milk, shortening, yeast, water, salt
