My mom used to make this for my dad when I was growing up and I could never find the recipe. I feel like a kid again!! Thanks

I don't like knockwurst or frankfurters, but I love hot smoked sausage, so I made this recipe with them. Good, in s jsr next to my jar of pickled eggs in the fridge. Vinegary heaven. This deserves 12 stars from the snack piggies in my house
