Historian Finds Oldest Recipe for Bratwurst

A hobby historian has discovered the oldest known recipe for bratwurst, dating the German sausage to the fifteenth century.

"According to the 1432 guidelines, Thuringian sausage makers had to use only the purest, unspoiled meat and were threatened with a fine of 24 pfennigs -- a day's wages -- if they did not, a spokesman for the German Bratwurst Museum said Wednesday."
