Königsberger Klopse

von PeterTuri
Es gibt sie heut schon wieder, denn sie waren so lecker, die
Zutaten für vier bis fünf Nicht-Preussen:
500 g Hackfleisch (gemischt)
5 große oder 10 mittlere Kartoffeln
1 Zwiebel
1 Brötchen vom Vortag (oder zwei Scheiben entrindetes Brot)
1/2 Bund Petersilie
1 Ei
Salz, Pfeffer
1 Lorbeerblatt
2 Gewürznelken
750 ml Fleischbrühe (instant)
1 Esslöffel Butter
1 Esslöffel Mehl
1/2 Becher Schlagsahne
2 Esslöffel Kapern
1/2 Zitrone
1) Zuerst waschen und schälen wir die Kartoffeln und setzen sie in einem Topf mit Wasser auf den Herd. Bis das Wasser kocht und die Kartoffeln anschließend auf kleinerer Flamme in rund 25 Minuten gar gekocht sind, können wir die Klopse zubereiten.
2) Zuerst das Brötchen vom Vortag zerkleinern und in etwas Wasser oder Milch einweichen. Falls kein Brötchen zur Hand ist: zwei Scheiben Brot ohne Rinde gehen auch (oder notfalls 3 Esslöffel Paniermehl).
3) Eine große Schüssel zur Hand nehmen für die Klopse. Die Zwiebel abziehen und möglichst fein kleinschneiden und in die Schüssel geben. Hackfleisch, Brötchen und Ei dazu. Petersilie klein schneiden und dazugeben. Salzen und pfeffern.
4) Jetzt die Hände waschen und die Masse in der Schüssel manuell gut durchkneten. Dann die Hände leicht befeuchten und hübsche Kugeln formen, die nur wenig größer sind als ein Golfball. So müssten um die 15 Klopse entstehen. Die legen wir auf ein großes Hackbrett oder einen großen Teller.
5) Jetzt bereiten wir in einem ausreichenden großen Topf die Brühe vor, in der wir die Klopse gar ziehen lassen wollen. Dazu geben wir 750 ml Fleischbrühe (instant) in den Topf, geben Lorbeerblatt und Nelken hinzu und kochen das Ganze voll auf. Sobald der Sud kocht, geben wir mit der Siebkelle vorsichtig die rund 15 Klopse hinzu. Sind alle drin, stellen wir die Herdplatte auf kleine Flamme und lassen die Klopse sacht 15 Minuten lang gar ziehen. Dann schütten wir - wichtig! - den Sud samt Klopses so durch ein Sieb ab, dass wir den Sud auffangen. Die Klopse warm stellen, zum Beispiel in einem geschlossenen Topf.
6) Jetzt geht's ran an die Sauce: In einer großen Pfanne bringen wir die Butter zum Schmelzen, geben das Mehl hinzu, verrühren beides mit dem großen Schneebesen. Dann gießen wir die Hälfte der aufgefangenen Klops-Sudes in die Pfanne und verrühren ihn mit der Mehlschwitze. Jetzt noch die Schlagsahne, die Kapern und den Zitronensaft hinzufügen. Alles schön einrühren. Mit Salz und Pfeffer abschmecken.
(Ein Hinweis für Saucen-Fans: Die doppelte Menge Sauce bekommt, wer die Zutaten verdoppelt - auf je zwei Esslöffeln Butter und Mehl, die ganze Klos-Brühe, vier Esslöffeln Kapern und den Saft einer ganzen Zitrone.)
7) Am Ende die Klopse zum Erwärmen in die Sauce geben und mit den Kartoffeln, die längst gar sein müssten, und etwas Petersilie lecker servieren. Klar wie Klopsbrühe, dass dies kein ganz schnell zu bereitendes Essen ist, aber auch kein Hexenwerk - und in jedem Fall megalecker!

Kids Healthy

Kids are taught to share their toys and snacks. Unfortunately, they also share things you’d rather have them keep to themselves — germs. Getting sick is part of growing up, but there are ways to prevent infection and illness. “The best protection is immunization against vaccine-preventable illnesses, good old hand washing, and covering coughs and sneezes,” says Lisa M. Asta, MD, an associate clinical professor of pediatrics at the University of California-San Francisco, who practices in Walnut Creek, Calif.


Getting the chickenpox used to be an expected part of childhood, but not for kids today. A vaccine against the highly contagious varicella zoster virus is now available, making the blistery, itchy rash practically a thing of the past. Dr. Asta says the vaccine protects against 90 to 95 percent of all chickenpox infections. “Children who get chickenpox after being vaccinated generally have a milder illness,” she says. Scratching can infect the skin, so apply calamine lotion to help relieve itchiness.

Fifth Disease

f your child has cold-like symptoms, then develops a rash that looks like his cheeks were slapped, he may have fifth disease. This illness generally affects kids between 5 and 15 years old and is caused by parvovirus B19, says Kimberly Parker, RN, MSN, clinical program manager for illnesses prevention at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The rash can spread to the trunk and limbs. In most kids, it’s a mild illness and doesn’t require treatment.


Although relatively rare in the United States thanks to vaccines, measles still affects 10 million people worldwide. The illness is a viral respiratory infection that causes fever, a hacking cough, and a total body rash. Measles can be serious and even fatal. The only way to prevent it is by vaccinating your child with the measles-mumps-rubella immunization (MMR). It’s given in two doses and is sometimes combined with the varicella (chickenpox) vaccine.

he MMR vaccine also protects against the mumps, a viral infection that causes headache, loss of appetite, and fever. The most well-known sign of mumps is swollen, painful salivary glands. Mumps is usually not serious inkids, but in some cases, serious complications can occur. Before the introduction of the vaccine in 1967, mumps was a common childhood illness in the United States, causing more than 200,000 cases a year. That number is now less than 1,000 cases annually.


MMR also protects against rubella, or German measles. “Rubella is a mild viral infection for children with fever and rash,” says Asta. However, the infection poses a real risk to unborn children. “If a woman who has not been immunized against rubella contracts the infection in early pregnancy, the fetus is at risk for severe congenital defects,” she says. Women who are not immune and are contemplating motherhood should consider getting a rubella virus vaccine at least a month before conception.

Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease

Hand, foot, and mouth disease is considered a mild viral infection that generally affects kids younger than 10. Symptoms are painful mouth sores, fever, and sometimes a rash — typically on the palms of the hands and bottoms of the feet. There is no vaccine and nearly all kids are better in a week to 10 days. Hand, foot, and mouth disease is sometimes confused with hoof and mouth disease, which strikes livestock. However, they are not related.


Despite its name, ringworm is not caused by a worm — it’s a fungal infection. It causes a ring-shaped, itchy rash that can affect the scalp and nails, too. Asta says it is important to get a correct diagnosis, so the right medications are used. “Your pediatrician may be able to recommend an over-the-counter treatment,” she says. Ringworm is very common and contagious, so get it treated and make sure your kids aren’t sharing towels.

Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is spread to people through bites from infected ticks. One distinctive sign is a bull’s-eye-shaped rash; however, not everyone gets this. Flu-like symptoms occur in early stages. Parker says that, when diagnosed early, the illness is usually successfully treated with antibiotics.Lyme disease is most common in the Northeast and upper Midwest. Using insect repellent with 20 to 30 percent DEET is good protection, but consult your child’s doctor first.
Head Lice
Once these tiny bugs make a home on your child’s scalp, they cause itchy heads and can be difficult to get rid of, says Parker, who recommends asking your doctor about medication. Lice and nits (eggs) can be removed with a fine-toothed comb. To avoid getting lice, tell your child to avoid head-to-head contact with other kids and not to share personal items, such as combs, hats, or hair ribbons.
