I love sour kraut and this recipe is a tried and true one from the early 1900's. It has a wonderful flavor of bacon and tomatoes. It certainly isn't the healthiest recipe but it is one of my favorite old recipes from my family. A holiday favorite.

How to Make Uncle Mike Kaczmer's Mom's Red Cabbage

Step-by-Step

  1. Fry up bacon till crisp. Break into crumbs. Set grease aside.
  2. You can squeeze out some of the sour juice so it meets your taste. Reserve what you don't put in the pot. Put Kraut, green pepper, celery, green onions and tomatoes in a large saucepan.
