once you rinse the kraut its essentially cabbage, correct? Ive heard of stranger things being done.
That being said, for my purposes, Kraut goes on Kielbasa!

Kraut Choco Cake

Sauerkraut does not lose it's flavor when rinsed. My grandmother made it in a wooden keg - it ferments and the flavor is absorbed by the cabbage. Rinsing does nothing except rinse off the marinade. If you buy kraut and it tastes like cabbage after rinsing you are not buying kraut. This cake comes from a German community in northern Wisconsin. My family is from the same area.

Interesting....I'd have to try it before I would try making it.

I cant believe its taken me so long to make my own sauerkraut. Ive always wanted to do it, but thought it would be an inconvenience. But after reading this thread and doing a little homework, i kinda bit the bullet. It couldnt have been any simpler. Just a few ingredients, no cooking and some time.

My son just eats it right out of the can. But then again, this is the same kid who eats pickles and feta cheese sandwiches since he was 3 years old. You should have seen the looks people gave us when he ate it .

i just had to revisit a sauerkraut discussion today. my sauerkraut started out as usual: 2/3 sauerkraut to 1/3 shredded cabbage, liberal dose of caraway in a pot with vegetable broth. this time i finely chopped and added a gala apple, and cooked it all for a good hour. for the last 10 minutes i added about two tbsps. bacon fat and three tbsps. medium brown sugar. it went well with the ordinary wieners i had on hand. i'm liking my sauerkraut sweeter and sweeter lately, i guess....
