It was the Bauernbratwurst before we left home. We renamed it for the Kiwi tongue. The smoked Bratwurst is a mainly beef sausage containing some pork for originality. In the German language ‘Bauer’ means farmer. They had their cattle and pigs in the old days. Slaughtering one of each of those animals every year for the family, left them no other opportunity, but mixing both types of meat in one sausage. Grandmas secret spices made them what they are. Our grandparents were farmers too. The smoked Bratwurst on your BBQ will make new friends. Warning: Do not heat them up in Sauerkraut. Why? Your friends will never leave! There are approx. 10 sausages in a kilo.
