Today was a family party, six of ten siblings gathered at my brothers house. I said I’d make brats. The procedure and recipe was the same as  before:

I made five lbs of brats. I’m getting better at making them. A lovely coil for the first bit.










After poaching in beer for 20 minutes, then cooled there are twenty-two bratwurst ready to go meet my family (plus eight for the freezer).










A panful of porky goodness!










Anyone hungry? OK, so I got carried away with the mustard.











It has been a long and busy day. I hope you all had a great weekend.

Eat well and keep digging!
