I used this in my German Stew last night, and boy was it ever good. I'll sure buy it again..

I think I may need to try this!
DH claims to dislike sauerkraut, I do like it... we'll see.
Maybe I should do so shortly so that if it's a bust downstairs,
we can always send it up the dumb waiter to Mr & Mrs Landlord (I did that today with two products that I purchased at a megamart that we DID NOT like, thankfully, they did)

Put some of that kraut on top of his hotdog next time. That way you won't waste much if he hates it.

I find that if heated, the sharp tang is tempered and less sharp. I use it all the time on hot dogs.

K and Addie!
That would work if only we ate hot dogs at home... pretty much the only time we eat dogs is at Costco (or this uber cute/fabulous dawg and burger stand here near the Grand Canyon), and even then, he HATES sauerkraut!
Went to TJ's this afternoon for my "staple" items (mostly the wine )
and I eyeballed that `kraut ... $3.99 for a so-so sized jar, hmmm. Dunno.
I should have looked at the shelf-life too. If it's okey-dokey for a long time then maybe.
Oh, did I mention that I'm the original miser? We have other names for folks like me in Hawaii, but not for public consumption ...

Although I'm a vinegar fiend, I'm not crazy about sauerkraut by itself. I love it in this recipe, though: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...ut-recipe.html

Sauerkraut is fermented and the acidity means it keeps for a long time.

I buy my kraut in a bag. It is locally made. It has a nice fresh taste.

I always drain my Kraut and reserve the juice. Then I lightly rinse it under cold water.
You can always add back some juice if you want. Sous Chef never liked Kraut before he had mine.

If you have some extra kraut juice try making a Krautini, mix 1 part vodka with 2 parts kraut juice and serve over ice!

Oh my gosh!
Italian Cookies (seasonal, of course)
So because of finding these cookies, I went looking
for the nearest Italian-style bakery to us... 80-100 miles away...
I'll pay the $8 once a year

If you've never tried the Danish Kringle you're in for a real treat. It's something I just can't resist. Thankfully they are only occasionally available, like now.

SOOOOO true Cheryl, there are times when I have no control when I go into TJ's, especially at this time of the year. The seasonal items are beyond yummy. I buy things to give as gifts... They don't make it into the intended recipient's hands

I too have to restrict myself and slap my own hand. Too many tempting things. Probably good that our nearest TJ's are 3.5 and 7 hours away.

$4.49 for 8.8 oz bottle doesn't seem bad.

Here's the link Smoked Extra Virgin Olive Oil | Trader Joe's
