    I am having trouble finding this. I even asked at one store and they told me it was Kielbasa! I told them they were wrong! I did find Bockwurst in one store-how close is that to Knockwurst? DH has a craving for it and I can't even remember the last time I bought it or even how I cooked it. Any help would be appreciated!

    Hi Joan, welcome at the German Forum icon_smile.gif
    I found this on The Worldwide Gourmet
    Knackwurst
    Knackwurst What's the "knack" in Knackwurst? Because the casing is tough, it gives a "knack" (cracking sound) when you bite into it. If you prefer a less tough casing, feel free to peel away the outer casing before cooking.
    Knackwurst are similar to Frankfurters, but thicker and shorter with slightly different seasoning.
    Fully cooked, these wonderful pork and beef sausages are a treat served many different ways.
    They can be grilled, fried, boiled or placed in the microwave. An ideal dish to serve with potato salad or sauerkraut.

    And this on
    Bavaria Sausage
    Munich Weisswurst- Bockwurst
    A Bavarian specialty made from the finest cuts of veal and pork with mild spices. Just heat and serve. This is a very tender and super mild bratwurst - use low heat so as not to break open the casing. Great for kids and babies,and people with sensative stomachs. Many of our customers love frying them in a frying pan over low heat with a bit of butter and diced onions to enhance the flavor! Serve with a good German potato salad, kraut, sweet mustard and a beer!!

    To my knowledge Bockwurst is something different when sold in Germany, more similar to Knackwurst. Actually I had supposed it to be different names for the same thing! But I am not much of a sausage eater myself and might be completely wrong. icon_smile.gif

    Actually if you can't get from a deli or a butcher, both Hebrew National and American Kosher make knockwurst that is sold in supermarkets, usually in the same department as frankfurters.

    Knackwurst and Bockwurst are really similar. To me the only difference is that the casing is knid of harder on a Knackwurst. You should be able to substitute Bockwurst without problems!

    Many Thanks to you all for your prompt responses! Your information should help me as I continue my search later this week. There is one major supermarket where I have yet to look and there are some German markets that most likely will have it. So good to see the pictures and understand the difference. Will keep you posted!

    I buy knackwurst made by Piller's at Costco and it is very good. I think there are approx. 12 to a package. If you live near a Costco you should try there.

    I love Costco and certainly don't begrudge paying an annual membership fee. I find food items there that I can't find in other stores. What is the closest big city to where you live? There might be one there.

    Costco has a website. If you go there and type in the name of your city, I think it will tell you the closest location. icon_smile.gif

    Thanks Irmgard, I will do that. In the meantime I found knockwurst to-day at my local Wegman's I should have known I would find it there. They package it under their own label. We will have it Thurs. night as we are having steak, baked potato and fresh asparagus to-night along with a tossed salad in honor of Shrove Tuesday. T0-morrow is meatless so Thurs. it is.

    Irmgard, The Costco site lets you search up to 50 miles. There are none here in that radius. Maybe they are not a "northeast" store.

    Had the Knockwurst to-night. Boiled them, neither DH or I thought much of them-pretty tasteless. We plan to search out a German market in the city and see what they have to offer.

    Check out the Schaller & Weber website http://www.schallerweber.com/index.html

    I remember my grandmother buying sausages from their store in NYC when I was a little girl (a long, long time ago)

    They were located in Yorkville--which used to be a German neighborhood. They're a bigger company now, but, according to the website still family owned--they take orders...
