Halloween 2023 in Frankfurt & Rhine-Main

.

Tips for an exciting and tasty spooky festival

Until a few years ago, the celebration of Halloween in this country was known only from American TV series and movies. Children dressed up in crazy costumes and going from door to door hunting for candy was always an image that in Germany was rather associated with Fasnacht. But that has changed significantly in recent years. There is an increasing trend to celebrate Halloween here as well, a fact that particularly pleases the confectionery industry. Goods produced especially for this occasion have long been offered to consumers: Chocolate ghosts, gummy pumpkins and similar Halloween-specific delicacies fill supermarket shelves from the beginning of October.

Also various TV stations put meanwhile in the last week of October their program completely in the sign of Halloween. There experience about "The Simpsons" quite particularly spooky adventures and of course the annual reunion with the most famous "Halloween" killer Michael Meyers from the famous cult horror series, which bears the name of this day, may not be missing.

First impressions you get on Instagram and TikTok on the accounts @horrorlabyrinth_liederbach and @maislabyrinth_liederbach



Halloween - The Origins

For several years now, it can be observed that especially the wholesale and retail trade has recognized the trend "Halloween", and of course uses this to encourage customers to shop extensively even before the big Christmas rush: Shop window and store decorations make it clear that Halloween has also conquered Germany - even though few people actually know where this festival originally comes from. From "All Hallows Eve", the eve of "All Hallows Day" (All Saints' Day), the abbreviation Halloween developed over time. Presumably, the roots of Halloween lie in the Celtic festival of Samhain. On the night of October 31, the Celtic New Year was celebrated at the time, paying homage to the deity of the dead.

This, according to legend, allowed the souls of the deceased to return to the world for one day on that very day. To appease the evil spirits, people made sacrifices, but often magic and sorcery were consulted to appease the spirits or, if possible, even keep them away altogether. The tradition of dressing up on Halloween also dates back to this time. By doing so, people wanted to make themselves unrecognizable so as not to be recognized by the spirits roaming that night and to enter the New Year, which began on November 1 according to the Celtic calendar, unscathed.

After the festival was first Christianized, the custom came to the United States from Ireland in the 19th century. Here, Halloween moved more and more away from its origins over time and became increasingly commercialized, especially in the 20th century. Today it is one of the most important celebrations in America, along with Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The pumpkin - symbol and delicious ingredient

As the most important and well-known symbol of Halloween, the pumpkin has always been established, especially in the United States. As a symbol of fertility, the pumpkin represents on the one hand the return of the dead, on the other hand, the carved grimaces serve to drive them away. These will-o'-the-wisps, which can be seen more and more often in German shop windows and living rooms, are called "Jack O`Lantern", or Jack for short. With special tools, which can be bought in every supermarket in Germany, the pumpkin is hollowed out. Then a grimace is carved into the hollow pumpkin with special pumpkin knives. This can be, depending on your preference, friendly, but also very dark and scary.

A small candle or tea light is then placed inside the pumpkin, and it is best to place the candle in an old canning jar. This will keep some of the heat from the candle flame out and keep the inside wall of the pumpkin from drying out too quickly. Jack-o-lanterns that have already dried out a bit before October 31 can be refreshed by a longer water bath, by the way.

Because the pumpkin is the central symbol of Halloween, especially in the U.S. on October 31, pumpkin foods are of course also traditionally on every menu. No Halloween feast is complete without pumpkin pie, cream of pumpkin soup, or some other delicious pumpkin dish. If you're looking to sweeten up Halloween with delicious pumpkin dishes this year, here are two suggestions:

1.Cream of pumpkin soup

Ingredients (serves 4)

1 small pumpkin, preferably a Hokkaido pumpkin. But since there are an incredible number of pumpkin varieties, the range of variation here is of course very large.

3 carrots
4 tomatoes
1 onion<x>.BR</x> butter
1 tbsp clear vegetable stock
herb salt
curry
200 ml cream
ginger (about <x>ampersand</x>frac12; tsp)
<x>ampersand</x>frac12; bunch parsley

Preparation

First, the most thankless task: you need to peel and seed the squash, then cut it into small, bite-sized cubes. Skin the tomatoes (best to put them in boiling water for a very short time for this) and cut these into small cubes, or slices, too, just like the carrots. Now also cut the onion into fine cubes and sauté them in the butter. Now add the diced tomatoes and let the whole thing boil down a bit. Now add the carrots, the pumpkin cubes and the vegetable stock, season the whole thing with herb salt and curry (dosage according to your own taste) and pour in about 1500 ml of water. Let it all cook at medium heat for about 15 minutes until soft. The now soft vegetables must now be pureed, and the pumpkin soup is ready. Then just refine with the cream and the ginger and sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Yummy!

 

2. Pumpkin goulash

Ingredients

About 1kg giant pumpkin
. 650g pork shoulder
¼ l sour cream
1 onion
1 tbsp grated red pepper
2 tbsp vinegar
50 g lard
40 g flour
1 tomato
1 tbsp tomato paste
salt
pepper
Cumin

Preparation

First, the real horror - you'll need to shred vigorously: The squash (either grate it or slice it into fine strips), the tomato, the onion, and the meat. After you've completed this rather thankless task, lightly sauté the onion in a large pot. Add the meat, cut into small cubes, and fry until it takes on some colour. Then add half of the paprika powder and the vinegar, as well as the tomato, the tomato paste and season the whole thing with salt, pepper and - depending on your taste - also with some caraway seeds.

Pour everything now with 5 tablespoons of water. If you want to intensify the taste, you can also use some strong broth instead of the water.

The delicious mixture must now steam for about 25 minutes.

Now mix the pumpkin with the meat and then add the rest of the peppers and vinegar. Again, you will now need to add water or broth to this and let it steam up. Now mix the sour cream with the flour, add it to the pumpkin goulash and let it boil away. If necessary, you can now add a little more seasoning and then serve the finished goulash. Particularly delicious taste to it of course - how should it be different on Halloween - delicious potatoes.

In this sense, we wish you spooky and tasty Halloween!
