"This is a comfort food that reminds me of visiting my grandparents. They always had kielbasa and sauerkraut among the holiday feasts. Kielbasa tastes best when it is sliced thickly and placed on the bottom of the pot before you begin cooking."

This was awesome for quick and easy, last minute sauerkraut!

Loved this! Not as "krauty/sharp" as regular sauerkraut. The onion gave it a little sweetness which reminded me of a Bavarian style kraut, which is what I prefer. I made this a day ahead to l...

Followed recipe except used white wine vinegar instead of regular white vinegar and it was the best sauerkraut I have ever eaten! So easy and quick!! Thank you so much for posting this recipe:-)

I made this recipe, but I tweaked it a bit. I use apple cider vinegar instead of white, and sprinkle just a little sugar in. My husband is not usually a sauerkraut lover, but he absolutely LOVED...

First time making kraut. Was very pleased. Will make it often.

Perfect! Has those onions in it as well which I think makes it that much better! Love the extra spices, find other recipes way to bland! Good job!

Hubby loved it! I didn't have celery seed so substituted with fennel. Very tasty. Paired with some Weisswurt and steamed potatoes. Prost!

We love this recipe! it is so easy to make and all I had was red onion which worked out just great! Won't buy store-bought sauerkraut anymore.

Never again will I buy store bought sauerkraut again. Will make over and over. Loved it! Thanks for sharing.
