Imported from Germany, these authentic Nuremberg Bratwurst follow a 500 year old recipe. True to tradition, the HoWe brand bratwurst are packed in thin casings, not the large diameter casing you find in today's ballpark brats. The legend behind Nuremberg Bratwurst is that a medieval judge was imprisoned in Nuremberg, so his family made him bratwurst skinny enough to fit through the prison door's key hole. Whatever the origin, there's no denying a great-tasting product that can last 500 years of changing tastes and times. These sausages just need a few minutes in the pan or on the grill to heat through, then serve with your favorite mustard and beer.8 links per package, 3.5" long.
