    For using sauerkraut or making it? If you're looking for a
    way to cook it, try this:

    Bratwurst, Sauerkraut and Potato Casserole

    6 slices bacon 1 small onion, finely chopped 2 cloves
    garlic, finely minced 2 lbs sauerkraut, rinsed and well
    drained 4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced 2 cups water 1
    teaspoon caraway seed 1 large or several small bay leaves 1
    lb fresh bratwurst (about 5 or 6)

    Fry bacon in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium
    heat until crisp; remove, drain and crumble; set aside.
    Drain off all but 3 Tbsp of drippings; add onion and
    garlic to drippings; cook over medium heat until soft.
    Stir in sauerkraut, 2 cups water, potatoes, caraway seed
    and bay leaf. Cover and cook over medium heat. In another
    skillet, brown bratwurst over medium heat, browning all
    sides. When cooked, cut into 1 chunks and add to
    sauerkraut. (Optional: deglaze bratwurst pan with a little
    water and add to sauerkraut) Cook until potatoes are
    tender. Add crumbled bacon, discard bay leaf and serve
    with your favorite mustard.
