Kathy's notes for this recipe:
My hometown of Evansville, IN is rich in German heritage! You will find many great, great, great grandmother's german recipes passed down through the years! This is definitely not the way Grandma made it but it is every bit as tasty and is a better fit for the lives we lead today!
You can make this a one pot meal by adding bratwurst or smoked sausage!
Make it Your Way...

Cook and drain bacon reserving 2 tablespoons of drippings; crumble; refrigerate.
In 3 1/2 or 4 1/2 quart crock pot mix all ingredients except cooked bacon. Cover. Cook on low 8 - 10 hours. Stir in bacon at the end.

How much vinegar? Is it 1/4 cup?

My mother always made this without the flour and so do I. I have never made this in crock pot before. Anxious to see how it turns out. Should be delicious!

The flour just helps the sauce thicken as the crock pot cooks and adds water.
