Pre Cooked Sauerkraut
Cooking tips for the caring cook.
- Pre Cooked sauerkraut is available in jars and cans on supermarket shelves. Fresh sauerkraut is sold in delicatessens and in a supermarket's refrigerated section. Fresh sauerkraut generally has a milder flavor than its canned counterpart. To reduce the naturally briny flavor of sauerkraut, put it in a sieve and rinse well under cold, running water. Drain well before using.
- Pre Cooked sauerkraut pairs well with apples, bacon, beer, caraway seeds, corned beef, pork, potatoes, sausage, sour cream and turkey.
- When cooking onions or cabbage, boil a small amount of vinegar in a pan to remove odors.
- Add cabbage to home made bean and pea soup for a nice flavor boost and a great nutrition kick.
