  • Ready for sauerkraut and pork day?

    Can't wait to start cooking. Thawing the rack of applewood smoked pork chops my brother smoked and brought down in October. Fantastic with the kraut.

    Sounds yummy! I loved smoked meats and cheeses. Do you make your own homemade sauerkraut? If so, I would love the recipe.

    Happy New Years.

      Sounds wonderful, I think I can smell the firewood all the way to Ohio. Enjoy.

        NL will start the pork loin roast and sauerkraut a little later on today, but my mouth is already watering.

        All the best of the New Year (2012)

          No, we do not make the kraut. However, when I was a kid my parents would make a 20 gallon crock full every fall. A deli near here sells barrel kraut and that is the best we can do

            My Bapchia's perfume was the scent of sauerkraut I swear to gawd - she made perogies with it !!There was always a crock full of kraut somewhere in her wee little house along with a can of bacon grease right next to the stove.

            I miss my Granny ..... enjoy the eats 55 !!

              My mouth waters at the thought of kraut......Hubby hates it. I'll make it for my son and Mom later this week.

                Perogies, yum. I like the potatoe and cheese perogies with sauted onions.

                Bacon grease cans, I grew up with those too. I set one up a few years back. One day I grabbed the can to use it for a dish I wanted to make and found that ants had crawled into the can. That was the end of that can. I may start a new bacon grease can soon as I have begun to saute the dark green leafy vegetables [kale, red chard, turnip greens, collard greens]. Hmm, definitely food for thought...

                    Our mothers and grandmothers and those before them (and a lumber camp cook I knew) all kept bacon grease jars beside the range top, but they used so much of it that it didn't sit around for long. I don't think most of us would use it up as quickly as our foremothers did. My mother used bacon grease saved from Sunday breakfast all week long. It would be better health practice to pour the bacon grease into a container through a strainer to remove meat bits and keep the bacon drippings in the refrigerator. First, it would keep out the ants, and second, bacon grease can easily turn rancid, and third, a fresher smell in the kitchen.

                      My Grandpa was born in 1898 amd lived to be 98. The last 2 years were in a nursing home and a couple before that assisted living, but he was still tarring his roof in the hot sun when he was 90. (His horrified neighbors called my dad)
                      He lost his farm in SD during the depression and came to MN and worked for a large farming family for many years and was treated like family.
                      As long as I could remember he ate fried potatoes, 2 eggs, toast all fried in bacon grease along with more bacon. He could peel a potato and not have any white of the potato on the peel and was quite critical of how others peeled their potatoes.
                      I was only a year old when my Gramma died. They had adopted an ophaned niece and he raised her to be my favorite Aunt.
                      Sorry for my rambling story, but is what the thought of bacon grease brought up.
                      One day while in assisted living he complained to my dad they would not give him any bacon. Dad found out it was because he was put on a low soduim diet.
                      My dad said he is 95 years old-let him have as much bacon as he wants.

                        I really enjoy the way a shared memory stirs up people's thoughts ..... I love to read about how similar we all are sometimes !! I wish I had asked my Bapchia more questions !!

                          That's okay Obie. My grand father fed a community of 15 families during the depression. He kept them in potatoes and cabbage they made into sauerkraut to survive the winters. He delivered baskets and boxes of veggies to all in need along his milk route with a horse and wagon. He gave it to them free. He fled what is now Slovakia and knew what poverty was and how to deal with it. The stories of his kindness are still remembered by the by the oldtimers in the area.

                            SCI 55, you could appreciate today's meal than Pork Shoulder, kraut, and dumplings. The house was ready to explode, and there's still plenty left over to fry. My last name should leave no question of ethnicity.
