Question unknown spice

My girlfriend is talking about a spice or an Herb that she uses in stuffing that is called Bonacrutchen. I don't know if this is spelled right or not, but that is the way that she says it. She even stated that it grows wild here in Minnesota...anyone know what this stuff is?

First, welcome MrBike to FC!

I have tried to search for it for you, but nothing likes my spelling and I have never heard of it. Does she serve it with turkey or how does she serve it? Sounds interesting.

Same thing here, you have me really curious also on what this is! I've also done a search and can't find anything with that spelling. Even a search of Minnesota extension office I can't come up with anything like that spelling of a herb or spice grown there. Can you get the spelling from, your girlfriend; I think several of us are now wanting to know as much as you do I'd be glad to post any findings here!

I'm puzzled by this one too. I did several searches to no avail. It does sound like it might be German or Dutch.

I think this website would be most helpful if you can find the correct spelling. I tried looking under the B's, for something that might sound like you spelled it, but wasn't very lucky at it.

Thanks Suzybeth. I tried your site as well as others. My guess (this is totally a guess in the dark) but I wonder if maybe the spice that Mrbike mentioned is actually a Latin term instead of a commen term in which we get the alphabetic name for?

Mrbike, where are you!n You've got us curious!

The spice bonacrutchen you mention is the Luxembourgish name for kitchen savory (in Latin: satureia montana and Satureia hortensis)
The correct spelling is Bounekräitchen.
The leaves are used as an ingredient in a Luxembourg ethnic meal "Träipen" a kind of blood sausage.
It was often prepared in emigrant Luxembourg communities in the United States during winter season when butchering.
http://www.igd-leo.lu/igd-leo/emigration/cooking.html
Paul KASEL in his book: Life in a small town (i.e. Vermillion MN) remembers besides Träipen and Stärzeln, potatoe pancakes (Gromperekichelcher), smoked pork sausage and the spice "Bounekräitchen" (summer savory, Satureja hortensis L., litterally it means: bean herb), an herb used of course in the preparation of bean dishes and which is also used in soup, blood sausage and dressing for poultry.

Yes, Thanks Lois. I too have never heard of that spice. When I got the notice of your reply I was trying to remember where that question came up! I'll have to try and find that spice now so I can try it in some dishes! Thanks again!
