Recipes & Uckermark

On good Uckermärkisch the potato is called Nudl and is celebrated every year in October with the Nudlwochen. The reason why the potato is Nudl to us is no longer to be said with Certainness.

The term "Nudl" could come from the Huguenots, who came to the Uckermark at 1690 and mainly settled around Prenzlau, anger, chord and Vierraden. The tuber was called "Nouelle". Another explanation goes back to Pastor Pierre Theremin from Großziethen. The 1716 ate potatoes for the first time and named them "Nodulus" because of their appearance, which is Latin and can be translated with "nodules". Over time, the Uckermark praise from Nouelle or Nodulus just made Nudl.                 (Source: TMU)
