#914 Stollen for Christmas season

20161209_135807

Stollen is a sweet for Christmas

I’m always look forward to getting a stollen in December every year. Stollen is a traditional German sweet for Christmas. Recently it is getting popular in Japan too.
The main ingredients are dried fruits, nuts, butter, flour and sugar. As it is quite sweet, I cannot finish it all in one time. I usually cut a thin slice and eat it little by little during Christmas. It is said that there is an ageing effect in the stollen. And I often found that its taste gets better near the end.

What is “Dresden stollen”?

The birthplace of the stollen is said to be from Dresden, Germany.
In order to maintain the traditional taste and quality, undercover agents are sent to check the taste of the stollen in each shop in Dresden.
Only those that pass the tasting test can be labeled as “Dresden stollen.”

My favorite stollen is my local bakery’s.

I buy a stollen every December. Although I have tasted many stollens from different shops, I think the ones from my local bakery is the best!

シュトーレンと表記してある物もあります。英語の発音だと”シュトレン”だと思います。

クリスマスケーキより長持ちするからね、ちびちび毎日食べてます。
近くのパン屋さんとかケーキ屋さんで売ってないかな。(私だったら自由が丘のシュトレン食べ比べる)

ケンタのチキンをクリスマスに食べるのは日本だけらしいよ!?
外国のカーネルおじさんはサンタクロースの衣装着ないのかな?
