      This is a wonderful recipe. I tried a couple sauerkraut and pork recipes before this, but this one is the best. The juniper berries are definitely worth using. I cut the recipe down to two servings and cooked it on the stovetop. This made the cooking time somewhat shorter. Other than using a different variety of apple, I kept strictly to the list of ingredients. The combination of the flavors is excellent. (Written before I sampled the wine.)

      This is very similar (same ingredients, slightly different amounts) to the recipe my family has every year on New Years Day. It is wonderful! We pile it on top of mashed potatoes and eat until we explode :) It is wonderful with shortribs instead of the diced pork (we change the meats we use each year). Also, we put the juniper berries and bouquet garni in a cheesecloth parcel for ease of removal later (cause who wants to bite into a juniper berry?).
