Judy's Sauerkraut

Recipe by  

"This is my friend Judy's sauerkraut recipe, and in my opinion, it's simply the best. Great served with crusty rye bread, mashed potatoes, and freshly cooked apples. Combine the kraut with a meat entree and bake in the oven at a low temperature 1 to 2 hours. Examples of meat entrees that work really well are small pork roasts, tenderloins, or chops, bratwursts, knockwursts, and kielbasa. Slow cooker temperatures vary, so this may be done sooner than 8 hours."

This is an excellent dish....just like my mother used to make, complete with the juniper berries. Very German...warm comfort food. Sometimes Mom would throw in a diced apple and as you said bratwurst or polish sausage.

Not sure why everyone raved about this sauerkraut. Not too flavorful, quite wet, and a bit too much on the onion side. It wasn't bad, but it definitely wasn't inspiring the taste buds to go for seconds. Hopefully day two it will be better . . . .
