    Saurkraut Can saurkraut be eaten "raw". Should it be cooked. I have never eaten it except to taste. I used to make it 30? yrs ago. Thought I would try again. My husband at that time said I made really good kraut. I do not care for some of the kielbasa mix so I'm just wondering.

    You definitely can eat it raw - you get the greatest benefit that way, from the fermentation process. When I get kraut on a hot dog, it's raw and cool or cold.

    Or you can cook it - just heat it up a bit or heat it for a longer time with sausage, pork chops, ham, or in a soup.

    It's fine to eat raw, it's a pickle.

    If it is the salty, vinegary flavor of the "brine" that you don't like, you can always rinse it well in cold water, and then squeeze it (by hand) until it is almost dry....that will remove most of the briny flavor.

    You could always add it to a chocolate cake icon_smile.gif

    This recipe (Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake) is almost identical to my own chocolate sauerkraut cake recipe, but I only use my chocolate sour cream frosting (Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting) on the cake.

    Sauerkraut is fermented pickled cabbage. Some people like it hot, some like it served cold. My boyfriend makes kielbasa-and-kraut, and he makes pork ribs braised in sauerkraut, both of which are very tasty - but when I'm having a hot dog, I like my sauerkraut cold.
