German Wurst - Sausage - Bockwurst

For lunch yesterday, I served Bockwurst with sauerkraut and mustard. I did so many things around the house and Wurst is the most convenient and fastest food to serve. Bockwurst are just  boiled or scalded in a hot water for about 5 minutes and just like magic, I was able to serve a nice lunch.

Bockwurst is one of the many sausages (würst) in Germany. Sausages in Germany are categorized as Cooked, Boiled, and Raw.

Bockwurst is categorized as a Boiled Sausage. It is made from finely ground pork (Hackfleisch) or a pork and beef mixture, seasoned with variety of spices and then smoked. They are colored pink. In Germany, Wurst is always served with a mustard and sauerkraut (pickled cabbage). It is nice to serve it with the traditional bread called Brötchen, but yesterday, we ate it only with a pickled red cabbage (Rotkohl) , but my German husband preferred to eat Wurst all the time with a mustard.

Bockwurst is said to be created in 1889. They are already old, older than most of our great grandfathers, perhaps. We ate what our forefathers had eaten in the past.We ate "history".
