be working the Little League booth because my sons are in it and our church youth group is doing the Connections booth.”
Henk said she’s been coming to Wurstfest for 39 years and planned a orderly route through the concession stands. What she couldn’t eat, she planned to take home with her in a paper tote bag.
“I know exactly what I want after all these years,” she said. “I start at one end and work my way through. Last but not least, I get a good potato pancake.” Abernethy said he is also a Wurstfest regular, but didn’t have an exact schedule in mind.
More important than a route, he said, was checking prices to find the best deals. However, some things could not be bargained for.
"It’s all about the potato

pancaices, but I have to start with a cold beer,” he said. “I have to cleanse my palate — Wurstfest style.”
Henk and Salge skipped the beer booth and went straight to a favorite treat — wurst in tachen, a sausage in a pita with sauerkraut.
The sticker price for wurst in tachen is $4.50, but since Salge’s husband worked the booth, she saved some money with a price of $2.25.
“Sauerkraut is an acquired taste,” she explained. “Some sauerkraut is really, really sour but this is good sauerkraut.”
sauerkraut was one of the things he would simply not eat.
However, he was willing to fork over cash for the kartof-fel puffers, or potato pancakes.
The Bracken Volunteer Lire Department’s booth offered the spuds at two for $4.50 or two pancakes and a sausage for $5.50.
“I think we all agree that this is the best deal here,” Abernethy said.
Salge agreed that there was

something special about the kartoffel puffers.
“You can’t get them any other time,” she said.
Henk and Abernethy got pancakes and sausage, while Salge skipped the sausage. Henk also picked up a sausage on a stick and shared her potato pancakes with an inquisitive Wurstfest visitor in another concession line.
By this point, her bag was getting full with Wurstfest goodies.

"I bring the bag so I can save some food to eat at home,” she said.
“But not the pancakes, I have to eat them hot.”
Salge and Henk each purchased a pork chop on a stick and beverage for $6.75 and $6, respectively. At this point, Henk was out of cash, but dipped into her own pocket for some fresh potato fries.
Abernethy, however, used his price comparison skills to find a cheaper pork chop across the Marketplatz.
He purchased his pork for $3, making the others jealous of his savings.
“Eve still got lots of money,” he said.
"Can I borrow some?”
Henk asked. “I bet you’re going to use it for beer.”
“You never know,” Abernethy said. “I might just surprise you and get a funnel cake.”
Now that they were on the subject of dessert, Salge picked up a fried cheesecake and bread pudding.
Abernethy felt he could do better with his money and headed to the Naeglin Bakery booth, where he bought an apple strudel, gingerbread man and zimt fladen pastry.
“I have enough left for a beer,”
Abernethy said, counting his remaining $4.50.
Salge, who had to return to her sta-
tion at the Little League booth, said she thought about buying a chicken nose, but planned to spend her last $2 on potato soup.
“You can really buy a lot of food for $20,” she said. “Enough to feed two, for sure.”
