    Default Kraut



    After reading so many mentions of it here, I wonder if I am the last
    person on earth who doesn't like sauerkraut?

    I'll eat cooked, buttered cabbage or the cabbage from a corned beef or
    New England boiled dinner, but I'm not crazy about that, either.

    DH on the other hand loves Reuben sandwiches (corned beef and kraut)
    and his sister eats wedges of raw cabbage out of hand like an apple.
    Eeeuuuuwww.

    I haven't been able to eat it since I made it when I was pregnant with my
    daughter. I had it all bottled up nice and was told I had to redo it for
    the freezer or it would go bad. This after the sage advice to bottle it.
    Had never made it before. Have never been so ill. Have never made or eaten
    it since.

    Freshly harvested raw cabbage is delicious, sweet as sugar... the
    cabbage one buys in the market are almost always storage cabbage, old
    cabbage becomes bitter.

    A lot of folks don't care for cruciferous vegetables, especially
    cabbage, especially fermented cabbage (kraut). This is definitely an
    acquired taste... you probably weren't fed much properly prepared food
    and/or variety as a child... there are probably many everyday foods
    you don't like.

    How about fried cabbage with broad noodles and bacon?

    Obviously a woman of discerning taste. A light clean flavor, with a
    peppery bouquet, calling for a light garnish of Beano.

    Alex, who does the same. The cabbage heart, to be specific.
    Tastes like raw kohlrabi. Great in soups and stews. Useful in
    gyuvetch.

    You may have never had tried good sauerkraut. Come to Germany,
    Rhineland particularly, and try some good, fresh sauerkraut from a
    barrell at a market or at a butcher's. Even some brands in sealed
    plastic bags at supermarkets are very good here. Good, fresh sauerkraut
    can be eaten "as is", with no cooking necessary.

    Nonsense. There was a time when I did not like sauerkraut either -
    until I tasted good one. This is particularly applicable to the USA,
    where I had fairly nasty, sweetish sauerkraut at several locations in
    New Jersey, Florida and Texas.

    Perhaps it makes a difference.
    Some day I will be there and I will try barrel kraut.

    That's an incorrect assumption. My father owned a grocery store and we
    ate a wide variety of foods, particularly vegetables. We ate kale or
    collard or savoy cabbage soup often before a meal. Broccoli, baby
    sprouts and spinach direct from the garden are a treat.

    I am much more attuned to Mediterranean flavors rather than Eastern
    European. Fermented and heavily pickled foods are not of my ethnicity
    but I do like most greens and often eat them with vinegar, including the
    occasional steamed cabbage.

    Here I have to agree with Victor. There is kraut, there is Kraut,
    there is KRAUT, and there is *KRAUT*. There are places in Brooklyn
    where one can find fresh made new kraut in wooden barrels to die
    for... with a shovel I can't eat it fast enough. I can already taste
    the kraut juice.

    I like the raw hard inner core from cabbage. I always munch on it
    whilst preparing cabbage, cauliflower too.

    You don't need to go to Germany, there is plenty of excellent
    sauerkraut in the US, plenty in PA and NY. And don't get fooled by
    barrel kraut in plastic barrels. You'e not going to find good kraut
    in warm climes. Cabbage is a cold weather crop, to make good kraut
    you need to be where the best cabbage is grown and sauerkraut has to
    be made from freshly harvested cabbage... shipping heads for two days
    is much too long. I've been growing my own cabbage every year for
    most of my life, since I was like three years old. I had my own plot
    in my grandmother's garden. Anyone who doesn't believe that there is
    a marked difference between fresh picked and cabbage that has been
    picked a few days earlier merely needs to grow their own and taste.

    Unfortunately great sauerkraut is becoming more and more difficult to
    find, because as with many traditional ethnic foods, with the passing
    of time there remain fewer and fewer folks to prepare them who have
    the memory of how they're supposed to taste.

    Nope, you're not the last person. Maybe second to last I can't stand
    sauerkraut. Don't like kimchee, either

    I do love plain buttered cabbage.

    I don't like plain sauerkraut. I drain it and simmer it in hard apple cider
    or apple juice to mellow it. The best sauerkraut I had was in a Czech
    restaurant in Norfolk, Virginia. It was homemade, and simmered in cream for
    hours before serving.
