Renate's Sauerkraut

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Denise

Maybe it's because we were starving? Maybe it was the open air? The last time my mother-in-law came to visit us, they stayed at the KOA campground and she made this sauerkraut recipe to serve on our grilled brats. This sauerkraut isn't sour--it's delicious! Say good-bye to sauerkraut that makes your face pucker like Julia Child's! And the best part--two ingredients.

Excellent! We really enjoyed this unique yet so simple flavor combination. The first batch was made with a store brand pineapple (DH's shopping - he insists they are as good as name brands) - it was more sour than the sauerkraut! I made half the recipe, added just a touch of butter and let it simmer for 15 minutes. I served it as a condiment with roasted pork and for the first time in 37 years, DH ate pork without applesauce! This is the type of recipe that I love to serve to guests for the "Wow Factor" - goes into my Book of Tricks.
