Is Bockwurst a fully cooked sausage?

Yes. It is not a smoked sausage, so the whitish color is the reaction the pork and veal have after fully cooking in our kettles. Hence the name “Weisswurst” (white sausage). Heating at a low rolling boil or steaming are the best methods for warming up this sausage. Poke a few holes in the casing before heating. It is very delicate, so it does not need an aggressive heating method. In addition, since it is not a smoked sausage, the casing tends to be chewy. It can easily be peeled off by slicing into the sausage lengthwise completely with just the tip of a knife and peeling in the direction that peels the easiest. You will know when you try!
