“Every New Year's Day, my mom would make her 'famous' sauerkraut. It is more than a traditional meal to ensure a prosperous new year; it is simply delicious (and easy)! Even for those who do not usually enjoy sauerkraut, this recipe's sweet flavor is hard to resist!”

I have used this site many times and have found some very good recipes but have never made the effort to rate until making this for New Year's.It took me back many years ago,to my late mother and her family who were of Eastern European descent.Followed the recipe as written,with the exception of the caraway seeds that were not available in my local stores.I also used a skinless smoked sausage that I had on hand,cutting it in sandwich size pieces and adding,in error,at the beginning.Stirred a couple of times during cooking and the aroma filled the kitchen.Following tradition,I served it with mashed potatoes and corn.Received rave reviews even from my sister who,in the past,said she did not like sweetened kraut.It was even better the next day.Adding this to my recipe book.Thank you!

Nice recipe. I cut the brown sugar to 1/4 cup and used chicken broth instead of water cuz I had it left over from another recipe. Authentic, polish dish. I served with mashed potatoes.

I have to tell you, I was very nervous about following this recipe as written, but I'm glad I did. I only varied from the recipe in two minor details; one, I cooked on high for half the time, and two, I didn't rinse the sauerkraut, but I did drain. I am the kind of guy that likes sauerkraut and kielbasa or sausage in the slow cooker, all alone. Juice and all from the sauerkraut. So when I saw this, with the sweetness added and the juice drained, I didn't know where it would take me. I was really thinking about even eliminating the caraway, but I'm glad I put my faith in the recipe. I liked this perfect as written. Will I always make it this way? Probably not, but I will definitely make it again, just as written. As much of a fan of the sourness of sauerkraut that I am, I didn't find this too sweet at all. The onions kind of got absorbed in and I didn't notice them, but I'm sure they added to the experience. The carrots were a nice diversion. 5 stars MellieLynn. Thank you!
