1) Schlachtplatte: As the name suggests the Schlachtplatte (slaughter dish) is a hearty plate full of freshly slaughtered meat. Traditionally the dish was only eaten on the day of the killing before fridges where invented, and it uses nearly every part of the pig. Consisting of blood sausage, liver sausage, and boiled pork belly and innards, the dish is for committed meat eaters only. For a shot of vitamin C and a dose of fiber, the dish is served with sauerkraut and boiled potatoes.
