When we were first married my husband wanted me to make sauerkraut like his mother. She did hers on top of the stove and made dumplings on top. It was good, but nothing like what my grandmother made. Now 40 plus years later he never asks for sauerkraut his mother's way.

    I serve this dish just like my grandma did. Mashed potatoes, homemade applesauce and a good dark rye along with a good beer. Not the prettiest dish color wise with everything being the same color, but delicious never the less.
