Recipe for german homemade bratwurst:
For 1 kilogram german bratwurst:
- 600 gram of lean meat
- and 400 gram of pork belly
The spices per 1 kilogram Bratwurst:
- 20-gram salt
- 2 gram of black pepper finely ground
- 0.25-0.3 gram nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon of marjoram ground
- 2-gram garlic
- 0.8-gram allspice
Free the meat from tendons and silver skin. Then cut the meat into strips of 2-3cm so that the meat grinder grabs the meat effortlessly. Then grind the meat with the spices through the 8 mm disc. The belly is grounded through the 5 mm disc.
Mix everything neatly together until it is slightly binding and then fill in sausage casings. Make sure that there are no air bubbles in the sausages. If there are some bubbles you just stab with a needle. If air is in the homemade sausages, the meat would oxidize, which adversely affects the taste and appearance.
The finished homemade sausages can be smoked. If you like to then do cold-smoking for 1-3 days.

If you want to have a typical german dish take the homemade bratwurst, cook it slowly in a pot with some sauerkraut. Serve it with a slice of fresh bread and of course a glass of cold beer 😉 We Germans like that really, especially we Swabians 😉
