Michelle's Sweetkraut

Recipe by  

"A New Year's family tradition. We eat it on New Year's to help us remember to temper the bitter with the sweet in the coming year! It is also kid-friendly; haven't met a kid yet that don't like it! If your kid hates sauerkraut, try this. Quick and easy to make but does have a longer cooking time to reduce the liquids and bring out the sweetness. You can use it as a meal or a side dish and some family members, believe it or not, get a bowlful for a late night snack!"

  • Cook's Note:
  • Get the darker-colored apple juice. I have used grape, cran-apple, cran-grape, cran-blueberry, and pineapple juice in a pinch if outta my favorite apple juice, but apple tastes best!
