We have a delicious recipe for bacon sauerkraut below, but first a tip: Don’t toss the sauerkraut juice. Not only is it good for you*; if you like the taste of sauerkraut, the juice has the identical flavor.
Drinking sauerkraut juice may sound strange to Americans, but it is a popular digestif and tonic in Belgium, Germany, Scandinavia and elsewhere. You can drink it:
As a glass of juice or a shot
In a vodka cocktail
As a sparkler mixed with club soda
We enjoy drinking a small glass of sauerkraut juice as we eat the sauerkraut itself: with brats, franks, pork loin, etc.
And if you have a store throat, some people swear that sauerkraut juice is the cure (and much tastier than gargling with salt water).
