It's a regular addition to a hot dog on a bun for me.

There is a store near my house that sells ONLY pickled products such as : sauerkraut, pickles ( all varieties ) , pickled peppers, mushrooms, olives .....

I usually make a trip there once a month to stock up. I sometimes make myself a ' pickle salad' by cutting a few varieties of pickles up into bite sized pieces and mixing it with the kraut.

Ive tried making my own kraut, but ive never been happy with the results. Anyone had any luck with it ?

This sounds good letscook. Will have to try for sure since so cold outside. Thanks for sharing. Never heard of this one, putting sauerkraut and everything in one pot.

jp, what was the brand name of that? I tried Nathan's sauerkraut which was supposedly kosher and very good. Even his hot dogs are good. Glad you brought sauerkraut topic, good for your health and digestive system. That is what I was always told.

Andy, it is good on hot dogs. You know how to make things better.

Thanks

************************************************** ***

I will be posting a recipe today that makes great home made sauerkraut.
It does not taste like anything you ever got from a store. It's very simple but takes some time.

This is not the proper forum for the recipe so look for it in "Canning and Preserving" later today. Got to run out for awhile but I'll do it as soon as I return.

Edit: I went to the Canning and Preserving Forum to post my recipe but found there is a wealth of recipes and techniques already there. So, decided to just post my experience with making kraut. Doesn't appear to be a need for another recipe that is too similar to the others.

I always buy the kraut in a bag and add a sprinkle of caraway seed. We usually have it cooked with pork steak, potatoes in my electric fry pan, simmers all afternoon. - Yum Also with ribs in the crockpot.

Beer and Kraut Fudge Cake

Is anyone interested in this recipe? I found it on a website, Traditional American Recipes. It sounds awful but it is awsome, comes from a small town in northern Wisconsin: Here it is:

Beer and Kraut Fudge Cake: 2/3 cup margarine, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 cup cocoa, 2/3 cup sauerkraut (rinsed, drained and chopped), 2 1/4 cups flour (sifted), 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 cup beer

Cream margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the creamed margarine mixture alternately with the beer. Stir in the kraut (mix well). Pour in a greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Frost with German icing.

German Icing: 1 cup canned milk, 1 cup sugar, 3 egg yolks, 1 cup coconut, 1 lump (about 1 heaping tablespoon) butter or margarine, 1/2 cups chopped pecans.
Mix ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until thick, stirring constantly. Spread on the cake!!!!
