Royal sauerkraut

Recipe: Royal sauerkraut

Royal sauerkraut recipe here is the first of the year and is particularly appreciated. For my first sauerkraut of the year, I like to take my time at the table. I also like when we remove the lid of the cast iron casserole dish and the scents are scattered around the room, playing with our senses. A great desire comes to me then and nothing can stop me until I have tasted it. Hello there! Of course, if the choice of your cabbage is important, the choice of cold cuts is essential. Choose smokes from the upper Doubs which are very fragrant, they will flavor the sauerkraut and the potatoes during cooking. Do not forget in your sauerkraut the smoked but also fresh breast, why my sauerkraut is royal, it is above all royal in my heart and I had to share it with you.
