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