Hungarian Rations No 5 & 6

Postby housil » Mon Dec 20, 2010 5:44 pm

I ran across two Hungarian rations I never saw once before:

I found a ->Hungarian blog<- with details and pic´s about the content

The only hungarian word I know is "goulash", so I used Google translater for the printing.
Maybe we have a member that can give us a better translation? :wink:

Thats what I was thinking.
Is that translation literal "liver and meat cream"?
Just does not sound overly appetizing.. Better yet, what is meat cream exactly?
I wonder if it should be more of "liver meat with cream sauce? :)
I am going to ask a few friends about this.
Cheers

It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed.

That´s why I wrote it´s what the Google translater said. Any further translation help is appreciated :D

I guess it´s some kind of paté that is finely grounded.

I was reading that blog, and MFZ-1 marinated goose meat sounds interesting :)

Those look cool man - did you buy those? I wonder what year they are and if they store like U.S. Mre's.
What is the oldest thing you've ever eaten?

Interesting that the Hungarian rations don't appear to contain anywhere near the snack and dessert high carb/ sweet items that western rations have or as I like to call them, "edible morale boosters."

Hi,

Maybe I can help you

májkrém (liver pate?) = yes its a pate , someting like this : http://www.flagmagazin.hu/userfiles/text/maxi_1.jpg Same as the French eat. But its a lowcost thing here.

Menu no. 5 : Resztlet máj (fried liver) yes its not far from the meaning :) Usually make it with onions but looks like this one : http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_9uqrcKwEeAs/S ... 08x713.jpg


The contains in theese rations are able to buy in all shops ... They are not made for military use. I think a company ( called SzilasFOOD Ltd) buys thing from different civilian food productors/traders and take 'em to theese 'old look MRE's' plastick bags. In Central/East Europe I found the companies use everyday civil products to their rations. The components are usually made by different companies and able to buy in the shop next door ...


If i you have any further questions write me ;)
