Ok! We’re putting it out there! Would you eat the “Crackler”?. We’ve been asked to come up with a “signature Mennonite doughnut” and this is what we’ve come up with. It’s a fritter style doughnut filled with the Mennonite waffle white sauce and rolled in a fried crackles and icing mixture.
Many will know crackles (jreewe) as the Mennonite breakfast favorite which consists of rendered pork fat bits and pieces. So we thought, why not roll a doughnut in crackles!? And why stop there! Lets fill it with the famous Mennonite waffle white sauce!? And there you have it! The Crackler! Do you think the baker will accept our mad Mennonite creation? Have your say! (Good, bad or otherwise) Would you try a Crackler if you saw in a pastry case??Would you like to learn more Plautdietsch? The ultimate low German dictionary ever published is still available. This amazing dictionary is the most complete reference of a language that was only used verbally for almost 500 years. Professor Jack Thiessen undertook the immense project of putting together a definitive and comprehensive dictionary to preserve this unique language. It makes a great gift for the younger generation who would like to learn and understand the spoken low German language of their parents and grandparents. It also makes a great gift for those who have forgotten many of the unique words and Plautdietsch phrases that have been used by Mennonites in the past 5 centuries. Order your copy and enjoy Plautdietsch like never before!
