Apple sauce

Nobelhart & Schmutzig

Hailing from the rich Brandenburg orchards and meadowlands of Äpfel und Konsorten, the apples used in our apple sauce are mostly of the Kaiser Wilhelm, James Grieve, Ontario and Boskoop varieties. A generous helping of butter makes for a delightfully creamy texture and brings out the apples’ delicious tartness. Best served at room temperature or slightly warm.

We love serving this Nobelhart classic as a side for pan fried brussel sprouts with raw walnuts. If you’re more partial to the traditional German pairing of apple and potato, try the apple sauce with rösti or potato pancakes. Of course, apple also loves pork, so have it with fried black pudding and potato puree – this brings out the apple’s fine flavours.

Nobelhart & Schmutzig
If Billy is to be believed, Nobelhart und Schmutzig only exists so that he can easily get his hands on the best food the Berlin and Brandenburg region has to offer. And so he can help himself to any of the 1308 different wines stored in our lovingly curated cellar….  But all joking aside, the motto at Nobelhart is:

Putting Local Food Back in Your Hands!

Nobelhart & Schmutzig has been “vocally local” from the start. Since first opening our doors in February 2015, we have grown fearlessly into our current role as Germany’s most political restaurant. This involves a conscious decision to shift the focus squarely onto the people, all from the greater Berlin region, who produce our raw ingredients. This self-imposed renunciation of products from afar, including lemons, tuna and chocolate, is the foundation of our eatery’s distinctive signature. There’s more at play here than just culinary aesthetics. Serving this philosophy also intrinsically means promoting environmental and economic sustainability for the people working with the bountiful nature in and around Berlin. It also involves pride in a sense act, even if too few understand it as such. And the ordinary shopping list very much serves as the stage for this modern brand of politics.  In addition to supporting raw ingredient producers from the Berlin region, Nobelhart & Schmutzig works closely with Die Gemeinschaft to establish a new and better eating culture for all. Good, healthy food should provide a future, perspectives and identity for the people who produce it and the companies that transform raw ingredients into fine products.
