Utterly Wonderful ..... AFTER adjusting seasonings with sugar, salt, pepper, and since I oopsed with too much sugar, a touch more kraut brine...., AND AFTER succumbing to the omnivore in our family and thereby adding half a pound of smoked turkey sausage per recipe (we used a whole pound since we doubled the recipe). The sausage was sliced about 1/4" thick and each slice cut in quarters. The small'sh bits then did not at any time overpower the soup, but merely complimented it tremendously well. Tried making this in the crockpot, and still tasted wonderful except that we didn't get the soup to thicken. We had tried stirring the flour into the sour cream right after putting the other ingredients into the crock pot, then storing both together in a saucepan in the fridge. Shortly before serving, we added some broth to the sour cream mixture, brought it to a boil and it was as thick as could be until we stirred it into the soup. The soup remained completely unthickened, but the sour cream was a nice touch anyway. Will likely try a non-dairy variety next time (used low fat sour cream this time). Served with blinis and smoked salmon. Leftovers were nice to have around, so we were glad to have doubled the recipe. --- Next time will possibly leave thin, cook on the stove top, transfer to the stovetop to thicken, will add extra potatoes at the beginning in order to blend in some of them, or will simply add some instant potato flakes at the end to thicken slightly.
