Welcome to DC. I guess you could rinse the kraut to cut out some of the the odor.

Have someone sneeze on you so you get a cold and can't smell anything.

Are you making it from scratch or just reheating storebought? My husband hates sauerkraut, so I just buy small amounts for myself which I heat by nuking in the microwave. Works great & there's no odor.

Here is one way to eliminate sauerkraut aroma. Since we are probably talking about German fare, accompany the subject matter with a plate of freshly cut limburger cheese. It is certain that there will be no complaints about the smell of sauerkraut as a result.

Rinse it a bit to cut down on the salt. And the way to make sauerkraut quite mild and delicious is long cooking. Even my DH likes it. I put some cut up potatoes and apples and a bit of brown sugar in it. Bake at 300* for an hour (with pork chops).

I thought it took months to make sauerkraut.
