OMG! Eric's mother gave me her famous recipe handed down from mother to daughter. Eric had warned me she never gives out recipes so never ask. So I didn't but after I told a large group of people (at Eric's fathers wake) the secret ingredient in my potato salad, she took me a side and told me the recipe.
Drain and rinse canned Sauerkraut and put into a baking dish with equal amount of cabbage, add bay leaves and cloves. Add a little water and cook in 350 degree preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours. Turning every 1/2 hour. it will start to turn a smokey tan color. Add kielbasa cut on the diagonal in about 3 inch pieces. cook another 1 1/2 to 2 hours and serve.
