I have an out of kingdom laurel who swears that it is period to boil the
sausages/brats etc in beer or wine or mead. I couldn't find any recipes
that are period that mention it. I used new world rather than period so
that I wouldn't get the what period are you looking at comments. Just
sausage. And I don't want to add any pork products. So I will make a small
batch without fat, one with probably beef suet or lard, and see what the
taste and texture is like. Thank you.
