This is a recipe that was gotten from a very popular restaurant in the 70's and 80's in our area. This was served before the meals as an appetizer.

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!
