    ClickandCookRecipes's Note:

    This is a family tradition to be made on Christmas Eve. If you love sauerkraut, you'll love this soup. Tart and delicious. Simple to make and smells heavenly. It can be very hard to find cans of straight sauerkraut juice, which is probably why it's such a coveted recipe and we only get it once a year. (if we're lucky enough to find the juice) This soup is supposed to bring you good luck for the upcoming new year! Happy cooking! *note: this is a handed down recipe and therefore I don't always have exact measurements, what is listed below is how my aunt and I made the recipe*

      This is our favorite soup too!! I use canned mushrooms which is easier for me. I recently found a farmers market that sells..sauerkraut and they had sauerkraut juice so I bought several gallons of it. I also ask our local store manager to order it for me. FRANKS sauerkraut juice is made in Fremont, Ohio...might have to take a road trip to buy some. Who would think sauerkraut juice could make such a yummy soup??
