SOME INFORMATION ABOUT KUCHEN

Our Kuchens are freezeable! They are stable in your freezer for at least 6 months, 7-10 days in your refrigerator. Although we recommend them to be kept in a cool place like the refrigerator, they are stable in room temperature (70 degrees and lower) for some hours, in their original wrappers.

Kuchen can be served either cold or at room temperature or even slightly warmed. You can warm in the microwave oven or in a conventional oven. Be sure to remove wrappings! Place in a cake pan or cookie sheet and put in a preheated 350 degree conventional oven until warm. To heat in a microwave, heat on HI for a few minutes (for the whole kuchen) or for a few seconds (1 slice). Time depends on the microwave strength, so be sure to check in increments of 10 seconds.

Some flavors are particularly yummy when served warmed....like gourmet flavors with chips ( example: chocolate chip). Fruit flavors can be served cold, which is especially refreshing during the warm months of summer.

Information about other products:

Caramel rolls can be frozen for longer shelf life. To reheat, microwave each piece 10 seconds.

Plachendas are sold fully cooked. Freeze for longer shelf life. To reheat, just thaw overnight or microwave, wrapped in paper towel, for about 5-8 seconds. To reheat in oven, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lay plachendas on cookie sheet and bake about 10 minutes until heated through.

Cheese buttons when mailed are precooked. To reheat, refry on both sides in some oil/butter until heated through and nicely light brown on the outside. Serve immediately.

Strudels can be made more delicious if made with chicken broth. A little cream can be added after the strudels are cooked, just before serving.
