    Irmgard's Note:

    This is the way my mother-in-law and other Latvian ladies prepare sauerkraut and after tasting it the first time, I have never prepared it any other way! It is so good and compliments roast pork or any German dish.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Drain the sauerkraut only if it is too salty, otherwise use it with its own liquid.
    2. 2
      Heat the lard in a large saucepan.
    3. 3
      Take a handful of the sauerkraut and squeeze it dry.
    4. 4
      Put it in the hot lard and fry it until the sauerkraut has brown edges.
    5. 5
      Add the sauerkraut, apples, bay leaf, onion (if using), caraway seeds and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
    6. 6
      Add water to just barely cover the sauerkraut.
    7. 7
      Bring to a boil; lower the heat and simmer for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
    8. 8
      Add more sugar, if needed, gradually while the sauerkraut is cooking, tasting often.
    9. 9
      The sauerkraut should be pleasantly sweet-sour but not too sweet.

      We always have sauerkraut with our Thanksgiving dinner. Thought I would try something different this year. Some of folks didn't like the sweeter flavor, but others gave it high marks. Just an fyi, I used the bacon drippings.
