Sauerkraut’s Coming Out Party

My second batch of sauerkraut’s coming out party was less successful than the first. The fault is mine, all mine.

Looks good.

It smelled good, when I opened the jar. The problem is, I boiled the potatoes (sorry, Dr. Ackerman! I know–don’t eat carbs!), then cut up the sausage (this was pork, but it could have been turkey or chicken or beef or vegan) and threw that into the pot, then I threw the kraut in, too, and cooked them all together.

Instead of the kraut infusing everything else with pungent goodness, the pungent goodness evaporated. Alas!

I’ll know better, next time.

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about a cottage cheese Jell-O salad that Charlie requested and the picture of which I GIMPed.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Something is lost in a general mixture.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I’d eat that.
    I like cabbage. I like pork, I like potatoes. What is that “toasted thing”???
    I’d probably eat that, too!!!!

      The toasted thing is a corn cake. Like a pancake, but with cornmeal instead of flour.
