This is how Nana served her sauerkraut. She put everything in the pot EXCEPT the butter and cooked it. In a seperate small saucepan, she browned the butter. When done, she put the sauerkraut mixture in a serving bowl, and drizzled it with the browned butter. Delicious!

I'm sorry to say this wasn't worth the slight effort. I had to double the sugar as it was much too sour from the unrinsed sauerkraut and the oil made it kind of slimy. I threw it out.
