I wanted to share an Oktoberfest recipe with you, and a sauerkraut recipe was the first thing that came to mind. Today we are making sauerkraut with bratwurst.
I figured a trip to an Oktoberfest party would be a good place to get us a recipe. After sampling a few good easy recipes, I picked up some ingredients, took in some sights and headed home.
Sauerkraut with Brats
32 ounces sauerkraut, rinsed and patted dry
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 cup diced onion
3-4 strips diced bacon
1 clove garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon juniper berries, crushed
1 cup Riesling wine
Heat slow cooker or Crock Pot on high.
Place the sauerkraut, applesauce, caraway seeds, and bay leaf into the cooker.
Saute bacon in a pre heated pan for one minute. Add diced onion and cook for two more minutes. Then add the garlic and crushed juniper berries and cook for two more minutes.
Add the Riesling wine and let that cook down for a minute or two. While the wine is cooking, scrape the bottom of your pan with a wooden spoon.
Pour this mixture into your cooker and cook on high for at least one and a half hours.
This will make enough sauerkraut to cover 6 to 8 bratwurst sandwiches. SUBSCRIBE! http://tinyurl.com/kfrblj7

This is a video we did for our food and society class. It explains how to make Bretzel Rolls, a tasty snack.
Combine bread flour, one envelope yeast, one teaspoon salt and one teaspoon sugar in food processor and blend. With machine running, gradually pour hot water through feed tube, adding enough water to form smooth elastic dough. Process one minute to knead. Grease medium bowl. Add dough to bowl, turning to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, then towel; let dough rise in warm draft-free area until doubled in volume, about 35 minutes.
Flour baking sheet, or clear area of counter. Punch dough down and knead on lightly floured surface until smooth. Divide into 8 pieces. Form each dough piece into ball. Place dough balls on prepared surface, flattening each slightly. Using serrated knife, cut X in top center of each dough ball.Cover with towel and let dough balls rise until almost doubled in volume, about 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease another baking sheet and sprinkle with cornmeal.Bring 8 cups water to boil in large saucepan. Add baking soda and 2 tablespoons sugar (water will foam up). Add 4 rolls and cook 30 seconds per side. Using slotted spoon, transfer rolls to prepared sheet, arranging X side up. Repeat with remaining rolls.
Brush rolls with egg white glaze. Sprinkle rolls generously with coarse salt. Bake rolls until brown, about 25 minutes. Transfer to racks and cool 10 minutes. Serve rolls warm or room temperature.

During this month's cooking class Chef Mike took us through four courses with an Oktoberfest theme. In this second course he demonstrates prep of Spaetzle.
Cat gives us a rundown of the wine-pairing (S. A. Prum Riesling) and beer-pairing (Shiner Oktoberfest).
