The word ‘Mulbratl’ (literally brittle roast) refers to a form of smoked ham.
A loin of pork is traditionally pickled in local spices and natural salts for 3 weeks and then cold smoked over beechwood. The natural climate of the Weiz mountains with its cool Alpine air completes the maturing process. The meat tastes best cut thin and served with grated horseradish.
You can obtain Mulbratl from the Feiertag quality butchers.

Weiz apple truffles are made from high quality ingredients with a great deal of care and skill. Only specially tested and selected raw materials are used and carefully processed. This ensures that only the very best top quality truffles are made by the Schwindhackl company.
The idea was based on a demand for a typical, regional sweet gift. And so Heinz Schwindhackl came up with a sweet with an apple-flavoured filling. After much testing and tasting, the very popular apple truffle found today was born. You can obtain other truffles with different flavours as well as the famous apple truffle from the Schwindhackl bakers/confectioners.
