This is another Czech recipe that my grandmother used to make. This is great over potato dumplings or over fresh rye bread.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 tablespoons lard
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups sauerkraut juice
  • 2 cups milk
  • 12 cup sauerkraut


  1. Melt lard and add flour, stirring well.
  2. Add 2 cups sauerkraut juice, stirring constantly and bring to a hard boil.
  3. Add milk slowly, stirring constantly. I warm the milk slightly so it doesn't curdle when added.
  4. Add sauerkraut and stir.
  5. Serve over potato dumplings or fresh rye bread slices.
