It’s a lot of fun to celebrate culinary traditions, even when they aren’t necessarily a part of one’s personal cultural heritage. They open our minds and our palates to the unique traditions and flavors of different cultures. With this in mind, we’re sharing a delicious recipe for an Oktoberfest meal! It’s the final week of our Eat Local Month celebration, so this Oktoberfest dinner features a spectacular lineup of local ingredients! Dabbling in this German culinary tradition is also budget-friendly since many of the ingredients are featured in our weekly sale from September 29th – October 5th, so grab your stein and your lederhosen and celebrate the flavors of Oktoberfest!
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until it begins to turn clear, about 5-8 minutes. Add cabbage, apples, vinegar, and caraway seeds and mix to combine. Place sausage links and potatoes on top of the cabbage mixture, season with salt & pepper, then pour the beer over top. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to a low simmer. Cover and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes. Serve with local mustard (try Green Mountain Mustard’s Golden Grain Maple Mustard!) and local Blackwell Roots Sauerkraut.
