Sauerkraut RecipesIt is milder and goes with so many other dishes. Great granddaughter (age 6) always wants "The Special Sauerkraut" and has been known to eat almost the whole can by herself. This is good on top of hot dogs, too.




Fry on low heat for 25-30 minutes, covered. Stir occasionally to keep it from burning. Uncover and stir. If it is too dry add just a bit of water to keep moist. (A couple of teaspoonfuls should be enough.) Uncover and add pepper to taste. Serve hot. This is tender and not as sour as it comes from the can or just warmed up.

I love to have kraut for the New Year and this is a easy way to have delicious kraut if you enjoy canning. Cut your raw cabbage fine. Pack in your clean jars. Press down real tight with a wooden spoon.

There is a good recipe on Cabin Annie's for homemade sauerkraut. Homemade Sauerkraut
ingredients: Cabbage, Salt

Shred cabbage and put into glass or crock jar about two inches deep and


pack down. Sprinkle salt on top and repeat till cabbage is gone ending with
salt on top. Place a plate upside down
with weight on it. Salt will bring water
out of cabbage. If there is scum remove it. Add water if water does not cover cabbage within 24 hrs. Take off
excess water if over cabbage by an 1/2 inch or so. This does not need refrigerated until fermentation is complete which will take about 2-3 weeks. Put in glass jar with enough juice to cover and put on lid. Will keep in refrig for a long time or until it is used. Juice is also very good to drink and good for you. Enjoy.

This recipe uses store-bought coleslaw, that is then fermented into sauerkraut. If you have never made your own sauerkraut, give this easy recipe a try.
