That’s right,,.”real” schmaunt-fat and Kielke! The thick noodle tradition of the Mennonites. The noodles are not really that hard to make, but the scahmaunt-fat is another matter.
Schamunt-fat is like a fine wine that allows no substitutes. Don’t be fooled by a knock off cream sauce that looks and tastes like béchamel! The real deal is made with the pan drippings of forma worscht. Any connoisseur of this Mennonite elixir knows that it should have a sweet smoky aroma and may even have small bits of worscht in the sauce. It is then caressed with sautéed onions that take the traditional Mennonite culinary noodle to the pinnacle of gustatory ecstasy!
