How to Make Amish Sauerkraut Soup
- Slice smoked sausage into bite size slices and brown with onions in bacon grease. *Don't overcook, either browning or while cooking the soup. Remove sausage from pan. Save grease.
- Have grease hot and add flour. Almost brown, as you would for gravy.
Add cream and then milk. Allow to thicken, stirring constantly.
- Next, add kraut, lemon juice and pepper to taste. May cook on stove or in a crock-pot. May also add more milk now if necessary. Cook about 30 minutes on low heat.
- *I tried keeping some hot in a crock pot for a Soup Supper we were having in town & found out that the longer you heat this on a high heat, the sausage toughens up.
