Curly Kale With Sausages
- 2 or 3 lb. curly kale
- 3 lb. potatoes
- about 1 lb. smoked sausage or Frankfurters
- 4 tbsp. fat, butter or margarine, pepper
- Strip, wash and cut up the kale very finely. Boil kale in
a little water with salt, about 40 minutes. Add peeled
and cut potatoes and sausage and enough water to prevent
burning (cooking time 30 minutes). Remove sausage from
the pan, mash remainder and stir in boiled milk until
smooth. Taste, add some pepper and salt if desired.
"Stamppot" means that the vegetables and
potatoes are mixed to a smooth consistency. It is a
typical winterdish at home and the Dutch have a saying:
never eat curly kale before the frost has got as it.
