Here's something that's pretty polarizing with people I know. Do you like the kraut?

I think sauerkraut is the tits. But only when served hot. Eating a bratwurst without kraut is blasphemous.

Gee, I wonder where this came from. :lol:

I love sauerkraut but only once in a great while. I have to be in the mood for it.

You guys really put me in the mood for kraut, for sure. Without the corned beef though, please...

Truth be told I enjoy both of these. One I can get and have whenever I want the other not so much unfortunately... :)

Honestly I don't know anyone who dislikes sauerkraut. Cabbage, yes. I love them both.  :)

Grey--this is german soul food.

Here's a twist on Kraut which you'll hopefully dig, Mutti thinks I'm a idiot for ruining good kraut, but see for yourself:

28 ounces Kraut
1.5 pounds andouille (cajun) saugsage--thinly sliced or cubed. About an 1/8 inch or cubed
1 large onion, yellow sliced
2 tlbs garlic minced
2 bay leafs

and believe it or not
1/4 to 1/2 cup brown sugar


sear sausage/onions till translucent. Mix with other ingredients and put in oven 325 degrees, for an hour and a half.
Serve with german potatoes.

My mom tried it for the second time, and my Dad tells me she makes it in secret--and doesn't share

My brother hates it. But he's also a punkass highschooler so what does he know :lol:

Girlfriend hates it. But my parents and I love it. But it has to be hot. No cold kraut. That just ain't right.

Dude gotta try the recipe I put up. It's affordable, and delish. Perfect for the starving college student

I actually get my own kitchen this fall and I LOVE to cook. This might go on the list of things to do.

I'm almost 100% German, and I find it vile.  I love just about all other German food.  Red cabbage and Spaetzle. :drool:

Sweetened is better.  American kraut is way too sour.

Oh...I'll take a good thuringer as a sausage.

For me the best and easiest way to cook Sauerkraut is to roast some bacon, stir it in the Kraut, add a large peeled onion (the whole thing) and a few table spoons of sugar. Now let it simmer for at least 1 hour. That's it. No big deal, but a great result.

No bay leaves at all?

That's how my mother always made it.   If you don't add that sugar, the sauerkraut is too sour.  :)

It's good mixed in with mashed potatoes too.

Not really necessary.
Sometimes I deglaze it with some white or even with some apple wine.
