    Countrywife's Note:

    This is the only way DH likes sauerkraut any more. We saw it on PBS many years ago. It was a PBS affiliate out of Oregon and I have no idea if it was a German language course for adults or a German cooking show. We watched the next week, but no German program of any kind. The woman cooking had a beautiful voice. Keep the juniper berries and caraway seeds confined. One time I didn't have any cheesecloth and just dumped in the spices. The caraway isn't too bad, but the juniper stays hard and tastes nasty when you bite and they don't get soft, which may be worse. Don't cheat and chop the potato. It has to be grated. It turns creamy and saucy. The potato won't do that if you slice or chop. Put some nice, big sausages or hot dogs on top and heat through and it's a one dish meal.
