Sauerkraut for Christmas

I love reading about past Christmas and family history recently I read a story about the Dusek family and you can read it as well here. You can also try the sauerkraut recipe as showed that was shared in the article I read.

Dusek Family Holiday Sauerkraut

2 32-ounce bottles of sauerkraut
Chicken broth
1 large yellow onion, sliced in rings
1 1/2 tablespoons caraway seeds
1 tablespoon of dill weed
1 teaspoon pepper
Rinse sauerkraut in colander and drain moisture and then put in a pot. Pour chicken broth over the sauerkraut until just covered. Add onion, caraway seeds, dill weed, pepper. Stir together, place on stove at medium temp and cover pot.
Cook and stir occasionally for several hours for the best result of blended flavors.
(It really only needs an hour probably, but we love the smell along with the turkey cooking.)
When ready to serve, drain the juice from sauerkraut.
You can add little pieces of dark or light turkey and also pour on gravy to make it creamy.
