Notes from the cookbook: Long ago, people had to lay away food to see them through the winter. Every house in the “old country” had a root celery in which people stored their winter supply of onions, apples, squash, potato, carrots, parsley roots and cabbage heads. After the cabbage was shredded, it was packed in layers with salt and store in large stoneware containers. This dish is an unusual blend of sauerkraut, tomato, pork, onion and sour cream, along with that ever present Hungarian sweet paprika.Unknown Source
