Cooked Bratwurst


Brats from an Authentic German Recipe:

In 1950 Fred and Clara Purnell moved the family of six to Louisville, Kentucky. They rented a small plant from the Schwabs, a German family who had been known for making fine bratwurst in their home. The Schwabs asked Fred and Clara if they would make their authentic brats for them and the rest of Louisville’s growing German community in their plant. There was a recipe exchange, and the Schwab family and their friends loved their Purnell’s Brats.

Then in January of 2019, the Kentucky Blue bluegrass band played the “Purnell’s “Old Folks” Country Sausage Ballet” in Bitburg, Germany for City Officials, at the Beer Garden and festival of flags for all the countries attending. What an honor. The Folklore Festival, was a showcase to all their German heritage of music, food and beer and Chefs agreed, Purnell’s Bratwurst -“Das ist guuu-ut!
We think that means, “It’s Gooo-od!”
