Greetings!  Thorhalla asked this question of another list I'm on and I
thought that perhaps someone here had the answer:

>I need some German language help. As I am preparing for my class at the 
>Cooking Collegium (yes, you did read that right!!), I ran across the
>phrase Erbsekeimblatt in an ingredient list for bread. The elements 
>translate out like this:
>Erbse = pea
>keim = germ or shoot
>blatt = leaf
>One translation I saw of this term is sprouted pea. That doesn't make
>to me as a bread ingredient but young or immature pea would.
>Am I off base? Thanks for any insight.
