Preparation
STEP 1

Toss shredded red cabbage with lemon juice and a good seasoning of salt. Let it sit at room temperature to macerate.

STEP 2

Bring beer to a simmer. Cook bratwursts in beer for about 10 minutes to partially cook.

STEP 3

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

STEP 4

Transfer bratwursts from beer to grill to brown and finish cooking, about 10 minutes. Remove from grill.

STEP 5

Rub a small amount of oil onto peach halves, red onion and jalapeno. Grill alongside sausages until dark grill marks appear and they become just tender. Peaches may take less time than the onion or pepper.

STEP 6

While sausages rest, chop peaches, onions and jalapeno into small pieces to make relish. Toss with vinegar and a pinch of salt.

STEP 7

Build bratwursts on buns with red cabbage and fruit relish.

Options

Sausages can be cooked fully on the grill over medium heat for about 30 minutes.

You can substitute sauerkraut for the macerated red cabbage.
