This should be a warning to you.
I made homemade sauerkraut for the first time. First off it is freaking easy. Second it is way better than the canned/jarred shit you get at the store. Third it is really crunchy....kind of a surprise but a nice one.
Well I was so stoked on the results I and had some sausage hanging around I at it together and about freaked out.....it is one of those perfect combos...like milk and cookies....wine and a good steak....etc.
So I ate it for every single meal for four days straight.....it was awesome
Very surprised that my paleo style ummm morning post coffee ritual was really unchanged from all of the natural bacteria I ate but paleo surprises me all the time!
This very combination has sustained Northern Europeans for centuries, live bacteria and all.
kraut n sausage is my favorite quick meal but i buy the kraut already made - it's from WF, can't remember the brand, but it's very tasty. It comes in a bag & it's crunchy like you describe.
Sauerkraut and some good meat - YUM!
Character is defined by what you do when no one else is looking.
DaisyEater.....that is Hilarious!!!!
Man, this sounds really good. I think it's about time I honor my German ancestors again. What kind of sausage did you use, Darwin17? What does everyone else recommend?

I've done the sausage recipe three times since I came across it in one of the PB cookbooks, and it's been a huge hit with the entire family. I use Chorizo for myself and my father, my husband likes the Hot Italian, and mom gets Sundried Tomato & Chicken (she won't eat pork yet, her loss ).

Please share the recipe, Darwin! My mom's been going on and on about making sauerkraut this winter, but I dislike her recipe. She throws pork ribs in the pot instead of sausage, but it's too soggy to enjoy. The whole meal is just a mess. Sausage sounds fantastic with it though.
Do yourself a favor and become your own savior.
