Celebrate New Year's Eve with Aischgründer Carp
Why not celebrate New Year's Eve with Aischgründer carp? We were in for a few days Bad Windsheim, Among other things, we visited the carp museum in Neustadt an der Aisch. In an old building on the city wall, the visitor learns everything there is to know about the Aischgründer carp - and that's a lot. It's all about carp breeding and what to look for. It will be shown with which tools the carps in the ponds are cared for. And one learns that carp breeding in the valley of the Aisch already interested Bavarian kings. We learned everything about the life cycle of a carp, and admired the table culture, which plays a major role in the festive carp feast. The carp definitely belongs to a traditional New Year's Eve menu.
The tradition of the Aischgründer carp
This tradition is also maintained in Bad Windsheimer Aischgrund. The Aischtal is the largest carp breeding area in Germany. There is no place where you can taste this fish better than in the "tavern am Freilandmuseum"In Bad Windsheim. Karl Rienecker, the owner of the inn, knows how to prepare carp in a traditional way, but also in an extraordinary way. Carp baked or blue, carp pans or as carp fillet on chilli sauerkraut - these are just some of the recipes, after which he serves the tasty fish to his guests. They like to enjoy their 3 aisle carp menu.
Already in the Middle Ages Cistercian monks put on numerous Krapfenweiher in the Franconian Aischgrund. Especially during Lent the fish played an important role, and the demand was accordingly large. The waters of the Aisch supplied sufficient water for the carp ponds, of which more than 2300 are present to date for the breeding of fish in the entire valley of the Aisch.
Aischgründer carp fresh on the table
Karl Rienecker owns three of these carp ponds with room for up to 200 carp. Right next to the Aisch, very close to his restaurant. Fresh must be the water and important is a permeable sandy soil. Otherwise the fish tastes moldy. "I feed them on home-grown wheat and switch to barley and rye at the end of the summer," says Rienecker. "So they do not get too fat. Rather, they mature to tasty fish. "Up to three pounds bring his carp on the scales, if they fished after three years from the water and walk in the pan or pot. And only in the months with "r" - ie from September to April.
In Bad Windsheim, where over thirty brewers once made the popular beerOf course, the fish has to match the beer. And so there is to carp sausages and carp on Chillikraut like a dark museum beer - self-brewed, of course, in the Bad Windsheim Open Air Museum. Rienecker carp dishes are now known far beyond the village. Every year in autumn many visitors come to the "Aischgründer Carp-Schmeckerwochen", which takes place in September and October. There is even one Aischgründer carp queen, You can also celebrate New Year's Eve with Aischgründer carp
