    Yes, and pinkeln is low German for "to drip". The sausage probably has its name because it was hung from the ceiling and left to drip.

    http://www.lexikon-definition.de/Pinkelwurst.html
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    Ah, I had missed this post because of all those sausages Phleg loves to post!

    Stribog, except for the feta cheese it's hardly unlikely that you could find any of those in a Turkish store. Western Turkish cuisine is almost identical to Greek cuisine, feta cheese, dolmades, tzatziki, spinach pie and all sorts of olive oil dishes etc. But Adjika for example, is a Circassian food (well for me it is, I see now that it's popular in Russia all around). It's not even a seperate dish, it's something that is put into almost every dish but it's also eaten at breakfast as a spread. I don't know where you live but here I actually found it in Russian groceries at Brighton Beach. Circassian lands are officially in Russia of course, so I guess you might get it from a Russian store. In fact, I just checked it and here it is:

    http://www.russianfoods.com/showroom...E7/default.asp

    and:



    Other than that, pashte and the "ravioli" I mentioned are also Circassian dishes and not Turkish. You can't find the vareniki (ravioli) in a store, of course and pashte is basically corn bread.

    Potoplika is, as far as I know, a Serbian dish since my grandmother makes it. It's a sort of a pie made with thin dough and potatoes for me (cause I don't eat meat) and usually with chicken or minced meat. Kumpir is also a Balkan dish, it's baked potatoes.

    Anyway, my favorite "American" foods would have to be:

    - bacon cheeseburgers with strawberry milkshakes
    - buttermilk biscuits with molasses and sugar-cured ham
    - hush puppies
    I know a Southerner when I see one.

    Grits (w/ salt and pepper, and butter, and maybe cheese)
    Fried Okra
    Collard/Turnip greens (w/ apple cider vinegar)
    Pork Rinds - salt and vinegar only. (Hard as hell to find)
    Sweet Iced Tea
    Pepsi - maybe not unique to my state, but it originated there.
    Cornbread
    (I'll add more)
    Another Southerner without a doubt.

    This is difficult, but a few of my favorite Midwest US treats are:

    Headcheese, yes I know it's scrambled pig's brains cooked and chilled, but it taste pretty good with cut sweet onions on top.

    Fried Smelt from Lake Michigan! Catch them off the shore, take them home and fry them up. Most restaurants here have them as well, often they are fished commercially from the Great Lakes anyway.

    Fried Walleye, a Perch with sharp teeth, best tasting fish in my opinion.

    I have never eaten pig brain but I've heard it's quite yummy. Lamb brains are delicious.

    Walleye and Perch are both from the same family of fish and I agree they are the tastiest freshwater fish to eat.

The continued to create new dishes and refine and improve old ones until we have the best Mexican food in the world.

    If you don't believe me, order Mexican food in Mexico and compare. Mexico does have good food, though. They have fresh vegies and meat without additives. Their seafood is excellent. They have the best coffee I have ever tasted. But their "Mexican food" isn't worth ordering.
    You're probably right, Dr. Wolff. Though I find the products of the amateur cooks at the taquerias (taco stands) more savory than the large, overpriced "bars & grills" such as Acapulco's, El Torito, etc.

    However I am now studying in San Fran"sick"o, which has many fine qualities such as the weather, the vistas, music venues, etc.; and I would comment on one local favorite that I thoroughly enjoy here: white clam chowder in a breadbowl, washed down with an Anchor steam beer. Go to the right soup counter on the Wharf, where the clams are caught and soup made fresh from them. I've had fresh it in New England too, but I think it's better here—it's certainly a different recipe. With a little tabasco sauce it's sublime. Also, there is a certain delicate cake made here in North Beach (the old Italian quarter), I've heard it's not known anywhere else — a sort of cake made with zabaglione cream, and you can only get it at Stella Pastry.

    Here, both pork rinds and cracklings come sold in a bag in most convienant stores. Cracklings, however, are much better when fresh.
