Spaetzle or Knoepfle?
A question of length, not of taste!
There are supposed to be people who claim that only their spaetzle are the real ones. This is of course pure nonsense ....
Of course, it is clear that if you have always had a long spice or a short breakfast since childhood, you will certainly claim the long spatters or short buds are the best.
You need to know that there are traditionally different spike shapes. Before our ingenious spice board, Womens preferred to use the spreader, called Spaetzle-Schwob . Spaces are almost as long as Italian spaghetti. In Alemannic Allgau, in Bavaria, in Baden, in Switzerland and in Austria short spatters are preferred. To make them, you needed a spatula earlier. In fact, this instrument should be called Knoepflehobel , because short spaetzle are nothing else than Knouml; pfle.
