thankyouthankyouthankyou!!!!!!! I have a BUNCH of cabbage planted right now, I have my grandmothers recipe for putting down the cabbage.
I used to love to help her when I was a little girl, she would set up an outdoor kitchen of sorts in her backyard in South St Louis. One could stroll down the alley and see all the other hausfraus doing the same thing!

I have no German heritage in me, but one of my favorite comfort dishes my mom made while I was growing up was pork and sauerkraut with mashed potatoes.

She took a pork roast and boiled it in water about 20 minutes per pound til cooked. Then she added the sauerkraut. She too always swore by Silver Floss, but that before you could readily buy fresher packaged sauerkraut in the deli sections of our suburban grocery stores. The sauerkraut was steamed in this pork water for about 20 minutes while the potatoes were cooked and mashed.

An onion was grated into the potatoes, along with milk, salt and white pepper.

I still LOVE this meal and always think of my mom when I enjoy it.

thats soooooo close to the casserole I described in an earlier post! I can make that casserole, put it in the oven, then close my eyes....... through the smell alone, I am transported to my Grandmama Ag's kitchen. i loved her dearly, she passed when I was quite young.
She came to the US in 1925 from Prussia, she was completely fabulous, about as far away from what one thinks as a typical German hausfrau as possible. She was tall, slim, well educated, impossibly elegant and sophisticated.
But best of all, she loved me VERY much, I was her only grandchild, lucky me!

1: not all Sauerkraut has caraway in it....
2: nor did we ever put ANY mustard in any potato Salad .....
3: We put in Apple piece's a little apple juice ( no wine) to replace the juice part, Pepper, Onion, notch of sugar, thats how we made it . I am from germany born and raised there

There is always a difference HOW to make something it just like with german potato salad... every Region does it a little different.
