Slow-Cooked Sauerkraut Soup Recipe

Slow-Cooked Sauerkraut Soup Recipe

We live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, which has a rich heritage of German culture. Dishes that include sauerkraut, potatoes and sausage around here. We enjoy this recipe on cold winter evenings, along with muffins and fruit. The "mmm's" start with the first whiff as the door opens after school or work.
