I have been making this for years. I got the idea from a recipe in the old Joy of Cooking and just modified from there. This is great comfort food

Wow! Lots of flavor in this kraut. I oven roasted the bacon till crisp. My Kraut had shredded carrots. Used for topping hot dogs. Made for ZWT 2011. Thanks!
