…every pantry has a story
I know that there are some people who just don’t like sauerkraut, which is understandable, it is one of those foods that you either like or don’t. If you have had a negative sauerkraut experience, I really hope you will give it one more try by making this recipe. When it is done cooking the ‘Kraut it is very similar to taste of carmelized onions, it actually has a bit of sweetness to it. You can serve it a few ways as a side dish, we usually have it with kielbasa and mashed potatoes, on top of hot dogs, or in a reuben it very delish. I always use the fresh type of sauerkraut that is refrigerated, which you can usually find in the meat section in most grocery stores.
Gently rinse and drain sauerkraut, place all ingredients in a heavy stock pot cover simmer on low for at least 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
