Nutritional values

Tastes just as good as the original from Schleswig-Holstein, but because of the low-fat Kassler back, the calorie balance is much more favourable; in addition, the light stew scores with plenty of vitamin C and B vitamins.

Rutabagas traditionally belong in this North German classic, but if you don't like them so much, you can use carrots instead - in some areas of Schleswig-Holstein this is even the usual version!
