I have been trying my hand at fermenting things. Kimchi was my first, and we have enjoyed it. This spring, when I harvest my cabbages, I put my new fermenting crock into service. (I still need to post about my first batch of sauerkraut!)
We have been nibbling on the sauerkraut for a while and I was hankering for some bratwurst to go with it. I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin with a lot of German settlers and we had a local butcher that we would get our bratwurst and sausages. There was another butcher in my mom’s home town where we would get our homemade hot dogs. I was craving both of those to go with my sauerkraut.
We have a lot of German heritage in the San Antonio area, but I knew I wanted to get some local pork sausage from a vender down at the Pearl Farmers Market. South Texas Heritage Pork. I have had their chorizo sausage (during the Dark Days Challenge), but I still hadn’t had any of their pork sausage.
Where did it all come from:
- Pork Sausage: South Texas Heritage Pork (55 miles)
- Cabbage (for kraut): My garden
- Caraway seeds (in sauerkraut): far, far away

P.S. I will be “unplugged” from technology for a few weeks, so you will not see you comment appear until I plug back in and get back in the swing of things. I look forward to reading your comments and will respond to each and every one of them.
