Obatzda spice mix
With this Obatzda mix made from fine spices, wild garlic and chives, you can make the popular Bavarian cream cheese yourself. You will need mature Camembert, creamy stirred butter, finely chopped onions and some wheat beer.
The cream goes well with fresh pretzel breads and savoury bread.
The spice also refines Quark (white cheese) and can be stirred into dips and herb butter.
By the way: In the Bavarian dialect, "Obazen" means "to mix together".
Shelf Life / StorageSpices lose some of their flavour through incorrect storage. Spices should be stored in a cool, dry, dark and airtight place.
