Frage:
Halber Kopf  
von Badger (US), 2012-10-20, 03:40  like dislike  Spam?  
I find myself translating a late 19th-century German cookbook for German-Americans (by Henriette Davidis). This is not my area of expertise, but I'm coping.
At the end of a recipe for "Große- und Dickebohen" is a short list of dishes that go well with it. Throughout the section on vegetables, which I'm working on, all such suggestions have been meat/fish dishes, and this is probably no exception. It reads:
"Gekochter Schinken, halber Kopf, Schweins-Cotelettes, geräucherter Bauchspeck sind die beliebtesten Beilagen."
Google gives me no help with "halber Kopf" -- the recipes I find are all salads with "half a head" of some kind of lettuce. Thankful in advance for any suggestions.

Yes, it could be half of a boiled or oven-roasted pig head. However, the German source text has a lot of mistakes, so better double-check with your client in case of uncertainties. Some corrections:
Große oder dicke Bohnen (Große Bohne ist ein Synonym für die Dicke Bohne oder Ackerbohne), ... halber Schweinskopf, Schweinekottelets, ..

de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ackerbohne
Die Ackerbohne (Vicia faba), auch Saubohne, Schweinsbohne, Favabohne, Dicke Bohne, Große Bohne, Pferdebohne, Viehbohne, Faberbohne oder Puffbohne

Après 3meto: It's an old culinary term for a boiled and marinated pig's head.  #677528

4;romy: I can't find any mistakes in the German source text. Reads like perfectly good (old) German to me. Badger did make a transcription typo—the text in the actual book has Große- oder Dickebohnen.

Thanks.  #677529

4;MichaelK: Große Bohnen and Dicke Bohnen are still 2 words each - according to TODAY's rules. It is simply wrong to write them a one word. I don't have much knowledge about Old German of previous centuries though. A couple of centuries back there were no such strict grammar and spelling rules as there are today. I actually overread that this cookbook was written in the 19th century.

Thanks for catching my mistake  #677531

... though I doubt that it matters. I tried just to copy the text, but it's in Fraktur and that didn't work, so I just typed it in, carelessly.
Antwort: 
romy, correct, it's two words.  #677541

The mark after Große is a suspended hyphen, which indicates two words.
