Wonderful taste! I started out by cooking 5 slices of bacon in pan, then cooking onions in bacon grease. Cut bacon in small slices & added to pot. Needed a bit more brown sugar. This was just fabulous- don't think I'll ever have kraut any other way now!
Nice sweet & savory vibe, but could definitely use less celery seed - maybe half the amount the recipe calls for. I added weisswurst for the last half hour of cooking, and served it over mashed potatoes. I'm reviewing this recipe for PAC Fall 2005.
I love sauerkraut and the addition of German Wine (Spatelesse) made this recipe all the better. My guests loved it. Thanks for posting.
