My next stop is the little town of Boffzen in the Holzminden district, which lies just before Höxter on the Weser river and the border with North Rhine-Westphalia. The Baensch family has been producing organic cooking oils and delicacies in its Solling oil mill for 25 years now. I poke around the mill shop and pop a little bottle of wild garlic infused oil in my basket. Both the wild garlic and the rapeseed oil come from organic farms in the Weser Uplands. That’s why it bears the ‘Echt!’ or ‘Authentic!’ quality seal of the Solling-Vogler region, which is given to traditional products typical of the region. Products from the Solling oil mill have also received multiple awards as Culinary Ambassadors for Niedersachsen.
