This Bratwurst recipe is based on a traditional Bavarian recipe from the Franconian area of Germany. If the sheer longevity of a recipe has anything to do with greatness, this sausage wins, as the first recorded reference to Bratwurst was in the year 1313. Fiery dog this is not, but it is full flavored and lovely on a nice piece of rye with a living kraut. Beer, as you may have guessed is a natural complement for this sausage, and performs the very best grilled. This is a fresh sausage, and is not pre-cooked.
