Smile Old George...

Some say this is the greatest country song ever written. I just hope I didn't make old George spin too hard in his grave and hurt himself. Hope you all enjoy my effort. Rest in Peace, George.

Aha! Cabbage=kraut...Now, what did the Germans make their kaffee from?

And no, the boys from Brazil did not send coffee beans via the mail or U-boat back to the Fatherland.

I await the answer...

Not sure about the Krauts, but I have heard my parents talk about coffee made from chicory, and Postom was popular in WWII which I believe was made out of wheat and molasses....

So my bet is the Krauts used the same....some type of grain

You are correct...In wartime Germany as well as in early postwar era there was of course a massive shortage of coffee as Germany was cut off from it's resources. Real coffee was only available on the black market.
So the people drank Ersatzkaffee widely known as "Mucke****" (from french "Mocca faux" = false coffee) which was made from roasted chicory roots, malt, barley, rye, acorn and many other things which were available. Of course this Ersatzkaffee did not contain any caffeine.

ACORNS?????

Dang....never heard of acorns being used....

That being the case, I could roast and grind a lifetime supply of erzatz coffee from what drops on my property just in one year!!

Smile And on that happy note...

Musical interlude. Watch, as Jimbob attempts the death-defying feat of emulating the vocal yodeling prowess of the vaunted "Soggy Bottom Boys." (It might be good for a laugh)...



Meanwhile, on the Russian front, the comrades are hurriedly mixing up another batch of vodka from a huge pile of potatoes and horse manure.
