Himmel und Erde or Heaven and Earth refers to the two kinds of potatoes in the dish, the sky apples, i.e., apples from trees, and earth apples, i.e., potatoes. It is essentially mashed potatoes with blood sausages, either as a puree or fried. A common dish from the Rhineland in Germany, it was once a staple of working class households.
