Sauerkraut

Any body having sauerkraut on the first day of the new year? Here in PA it is a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition. Traditions say that if you eat sauerkraut on New Years Day you will have good luck all year long.

It's the same as eating cabbage or some other greens - sometimes I have it but mostly I just make a pot of Hoppin' John "my way".

I didint know that but I ended up having cabbage and vinegar today... I made a kinda sweet and sour stir fry of cabbage and pork using rice vinegar and mirin besides a little light soy sauce and halved cloves of garlic. Man, nothing like some greasy food for the holidays.

I adopted the, cabbage on New Years, from a dear friend, whose maiden name just happened to be Wagner. I have continued, throughout the years. This year I added the noodles and sour cream with a pinch of ground anise seed, couldn't find my caraway. It was a refreshing change.
It is very easy for me as I love cabbage and raw or cooked and have many recipes. One of my favorites is a one using diced tomatoes. YUM YUM.
