Last night we got to taste the first batch of Opa Helmut’s Rub recipe for German Bratwurst ever made in the US by his granddaughter, Astrid, a friend of ours. After eating ourselves silly, I need to tell you those sausages were the best sausages of any kind that I have ever tasted, and we have travelled and eaten Bratwurst in Germany. Never before have I tasted such freshness and clarity. With no nitrates and no curing, the sausages did not have that “I’m-going-to–last-forever quality that I don’t like in cured meats. Thus, the fresh, pure taste. I could actually distinguish the ground pork (with no bits of bone or cartilage) etc., mixed with the spices and herbs. Outstanding!
Of course, Astrid used her family’s secret Bratwurst spice rub, of the Thuringer style Bratwurst, which you will be able to buy soon, along with her other outstanding spice rub mixes, on the website www.opahelmutsrub.com. Her meat rubs have been a wild hit here in the South Bay Area. I highly recommend them, not only because they are Gluten Free and MSG free, but are made without weird, unpronounceable ingredients, simply the pure herbs and spices. What a gift Astrid is giving the United States by sharing her family’s exclusive meat rubs with us. The best of the German butcher/craftsman has come to America. Lucky us!
Again, go to www.opahelmutsrub.com to try these amazing, exclusive Gluten Free and MSG free spice rubs.
