This recipe has to be the best tasting sauerkraut I've ever had. Traditionally, my family serves Pork and Sauerkraut every New Years Day for luck in the coming year. I love cabbage as a general rule and like most sauerkraut recipes, but they can be quite "sour" depending on how it is prepared. Sadly I don't remember who gave me this recipe and who deserves the credit (sorry), since it was pulled from a collection of hand written recipes I've kept for years. However, I made it as a side dish for this New Years Day dinner and it was a complete "hit"!! This is certainly not your typical "sour" sauerkraut recipe. Enjoy!
