I've Been Converted, to Sauerkraut

So after all the nice, concerned and very helpful answer to my plea last week to know whether or not my sauerkraut was any good. I want to thank you.
So this is what I decided. 
See how it was discolored near the top. 
I had never made my own before so I have no experience on what is good, bad, right or wrong. So with what I've read and the answers I received, I decided it was safe to eat. So I removed the discolored kraut and ate what was below.
That was yesterday and we are here, fine  and  that was the best sauerkraut I have ever had. I have had only store bought in the past and did not like it. If I had know how yummy it was, I would of been making my own years ago.

At stitch group the other day, Debbie was telling us about the sauerkraut she made for Joann and her husband. Joann had said it was so good. I made it last night and it was.
You ought to try it.

Here is Debbie's Recipe

(She used a can of store bought)

I used 3 cup of my sauerkraut, rinsed 
1 apple peeled and chopped
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup white wine (I used White Zinfandel)

Place all ingredients in a sauce pan and cover. Simmer on low for a couple hours. 
Oh and how scrumptious.

I am making more sauerkraut tomorrow


  1. I don't like it enough to make it. I might buy one can a year to go with Bratwurst and that is it. Glad you figured it out and that you didn't get sick from it!

  2. I've made big batches in a churn and then canned it. Glad you found some you liked.

  3. Congratulations! The benefits of fermented foods are many and I bet It tastes great.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
