Knackwurst about twice a month with sauerkraut and boiled potatoes. I can also recall someone who made there own sauerkraut in a big ceramic jar (5 gallon size) with a lid that pressed down on it, but I don't remember who it was. I guess that is what's called getting older! I've got to much to remember-lol!
It is now known that the preservation of sauerkraut in an anaerobic environment (in the brine) keeps the vitamin C in it from being oxidized.
It also provides various cancer-fighting compounds including isothiocyanate and sulphoraphane.
