Some fun facts about Bratwurst:
•The oldest known recipe for Bratwurst dates back to 1432!
•The Bratwurst had its origins with the Celtics and it was the Franconians that developed it further.
•Brat comes from an old German word that means meat without waste. Wurst means sausage and possibly comes from the word Wirren, that originally meant mixture.
•According to legend, Hans V Stromer (1517-1592), a judge in the medieval times, was imprisoned for life for revealing an important secret. His life term in prison meant that once the cell doors were shut, he never again left his cell. Since he was a high ranking prisoner, he was granted one reasonable wish.
That wish was to be allowed 2 Bratwursts daily until his death. So, his family made a Bratwurst so small it could be passed through the keyhole of the prison door. (The key must have been a large key?) Now you know!
