    Hello, This is my first post here, however I have read a lot of excellent information so far on this forum. I was hoping that someone might have  a recipe that mimics Schneider's Oktoberfest sausage. I have tried several Oktoberfest sausage recipes, but have not yet hit one that is close.

    If anyone has some input, I and likely others would appreciate it greatly.

    Hi True North,

    here's maybe a recipe that you can use. Mind you, what I suspect you are looking for (Munich Weisswurst) will NOT be smoked, but heated in water, and eaten with sweet mustard.

    Without further ado, here's the recipe, I'll try to translate as best I can:

    1,2kg Rind / Kalbfleisch                                         1,2 kg beef/veal
    0,8kg Schweineschulter mager                              0,8 kg pork shoulder, lean
    0,8kg Schweinebacken                                          0,8 kg pork cheeks (*)
    0,2kg gekochte Schwarten                                    0,2 kg cooked fat back
    0,6 ltr eiskalte Milch od. Eisschnee                        0,6 Liter ice cold milk, or ice snow 

    Pro/kg                                                                    per combined kg of the above
    21g Kochsalz                                                         21 g salt

    3g Pfeffer                                                               3 g pepper

    1,5Muskat                                                              1,5 g nutmeg
    1g Backzitronenpulver                                           1 g lemon powder (or perhaps a drop of lemon essence)
    0,5g Piment                                                           0,5 g allspice
    15g Petersilie frisch / gehackt                                15 g fresh parsley, chopped

    Die Schwarten (damit sie kalt sind) am Vortag 45 Min. kochen  
    abtrocknen lassen und mit der 2-3er Scheibe wolfen.  
    Am Tag der Herstellung das Fleisch und die Schwarten  
    mit allen Zutaten wolfen , anfrieren und kuttern.  
    Abfüllen in Schweinedärme Kal. 28/30 zu je 15 cm  
    und 30 Min brühen mit 75° danach in kaltem Wasser abkühlen.  

    Cook the pork fat back the day before (in order for it to be cold),  @45 minutes, pat dry and put through small disk of your meat grinder.

    Next day, grind and combine all ingredients, chill until lightly frozen, then put in food processor until smooth (perhaps in batches).

    Fill into 28/30 mm hog casings, about 6 inches per sausage. Simmer at 75 degrees C (@170 degrees F) for @30 minutes, then chill.

    * Note:pork cheeks are tough to come by, so I'd substitute raw bacon/pork belly  for this.


    Haven't done this one yet, but looks like some guys who usually have terrific recipes do. Here's the link to where I found this:

    I can't speak for BigGuy, but sometimes cure is added to a sausage to give it a pink color instead of the uncured gray color of a fresh sausage.

  12. You are correct you don't need the cure for protection It is there for color and taste.
  13. Hello friends, I've been in Nashville Tennessee for 19 years and never been able to find what I recall as true Oktoberfest sausage. Now I found this little site and receipes, and I think it might be because 'Oktoberfest' is a name for Schneiders' version? Do I have to order from Schneiders' for delivery?

    There are many German sausages found here in the land of deep fried Turkeys and deep fried Dill Pickles on a stick (ya, really!) but nothing like the sausages up north. A friend of mine who is a Wisconsin native of German descent doesn't even know what I'm talking about but says it sounds great.

    I remember going to the Kitchener and Elmira farm markets on weekends in the fall when the sausages would be rolling on their little grills. It would be served up on a crusty hard roll (inside soft) with the hot juicy sausage nestled in comfortably, then blanketed with a nice pile of sauerkraut and finally, drizzled with copious amounts of real German mustard. Think of how welcome that was, coming in from the cold,crisp day, with the smell of snow and burning wood chimneys in the air. ahhhhh!

    My friends wonder if I am German and I say no, I'm French actually but there is nothing like the sausage experience that I am describing. Ditto for Poutine which is just starting to be experienced here.

    We were usually able to also buy the sausages in the packages, freeze them and cook all year round, not just in October.

    Well, we finally got Red Rose tea down here after having to order it for years so miracles can happen.
