Smoked Sauerkraut

This holiday season, add this healthy Alsatian delicacy as a side dish to your festive table!

Do you like sour cabbage served with smoked sausages or pork or poultry? Everything we enjoy eating WITH smoked foods will also taste outstanding when smoke-roasted. This rule works for me every time. Though I experimented with adding smokey flavors to some unconventional foods, sauerkraut didn’t come to my mind until my friend mentioned a restaurant serving it smoked. Now, after making it at home time after time, fermented cabbage with its distinct tang looks like an obvious candidate for roast-smoking.

With Cameron’s stovetop smoker, it takes 20 minutes to add a hickory smoke flavor to fermented cabbage and another 5 to saute it with onions and heavy cream. It is as easy and quick as impressive for its complexity of well-balanced flavors. In France, it is served with cooked white fish, sausages, pork, and various poultry. Enjoy and happy holidays season!
