Gwen Cat suggested:
<<< Sausage (like bratwurst) cut into bite size bits
served with mustard is perfectly acceptable food.
(though most of the sausages in Rumpolt are smoked,
bratwurst is found in other period German sources.) >>>

Something that would seem to go well with sausage, and seems to have  
been rather common in medieval Germany would be chopped cabbage/ 
sauerkraut dishes. And this should be easy to make ahead and  
transport to the sites mentioned:

sauerkraut-msg    (36K)  9/25/05    Period sauerkraut and pickled  

<<< He lists capers and olives among his side dishes, and
sugar comfits as dainties too.  >>>

These sound like good additions as well.

I was thinking that some German pastries of some type might be good  
for this, but I don't seem to have any files specific to German  
pastries. Perhaps jumbals or pretzels?
