A big part of Germany’s culinary culture is their mouthwatering wursts. All over the world, they have the largest collection of wurst there is. All in all, the number is over a staggering 1,500 different kind of wursts. Unfortunately not each and every one is available outside Germany. But, your local German shops might provide a huge portion of the number.
For on the list of the best is their traditional Bratwurst. Mainly made out of pork and encased in natural casing, this is a favorite among Germans and so many varieties and unique recipes have been created since. Then there’s Blutwurst, the name isn’t really that appetizing, but you’d be surprised how savory and delicious it is. It’s also made out of pork, but with the addition of pig’s blood, don’t cringe until you try!
One that can’t disappear from the top is the Currywurst, found almost anywhere in Germany, this famous wurst is abundant in Berlin where it originated. It’s also made out of pork and traditionally eaten with curry ketchup. On the other hand, veal and pork make up the delectable Weisswurst, it’d also color white. Traditionally, it has lemon powder that gives it the distinct lighter color and a citrusy taste.
Frankfurter Würstchen is made of pork, it’s thin and long and has a hint of smoky flavor. A wurst so revered that long ago, no other place can produce it except for the city of Frankfurt. And lastly we have Mettwurst, the wurst that completes any morning. It’s a soft and even spreadable wurst, a piece of bread with a generous helping of Mettwurst can complete any day.
