I heard somewhere that burning vanilla candles while you are cooking will cut down on the odor - I tried that with not much success. Is there something about using white vinegar?

Hello and welcome to DC. As far as the Odorus Sauerkraut I would get a fan and put it in the kitchen while you are preparing your meal.

Thanks for all the suggestions - I put kraut and ribs in crockpot for 6 hours and everything turned out delicious. Didn't notice any bad odor.

What kind of ribs did you use? Other seasonings? Interesting kraut & ribs.
Is it layered in the crockpot? or kraut on bottom and ribs on top?

sounds like a culinary paradox to me, have sauerkraut, smell will be there. All part of the process,imo.

My mom used to make spareribs and sauerkraut, and I loved it! Unfortunately, my husbands have all turned their noses up at the dish, and it isn't something I'd fix for myself, so it's been 40 years since I've had any.

Could you maybe email me a dish of ribs & kraut?

That sounds like a very interesting combination. It is not something I am used to, but I would be interested in trying it.

I used pork loin country ribs. Add 1 cup applesauce, 2 small onions, 1 tsp garlic powder, salt & pepper to taste. Kraut in bottom of crockpot, browned ribs on top. 6 - 7 hours, no peeking until finished. Yummy!!

Sounds good to me! I cut up apples in mine so I'm sure the applesauce would do the same thing - what a great idea!!!! The only thing I add to mine that you didn't mention is some brown sugar and juniper berries. That's the way I was taught to cook it at the Culinary Institute of Mom I remember the smell from her skillet of sauerkraut and ribs cooking all day long - yum! I think she used what is now called Texas style ribs.
