I love this stuff and seeing how it's Oktoberfest I made some up . You can go alot of different ways with this recipe but I like to keep it simple. I want the dominant flavor to be the sauerkraut.
I started out by simmering a ham bone I had left over from a picnic ham in a pot of water for 3 to 4 hours until it was a nice broth.
Cut up and put in crock pot:
3to 4 medium carrots
3 to 4 stalks celery
1 medium onion
4 medium red potatos ( I left the skins on)
1 ring polksa keilbasa sausage
1 32oz bag Franks sauerkraut partailly drained. (I use the bag stuff you find in the deli refrigerated section) better than the canned imo.
cbp to your liking and salt to your liking
Pour your broth over the crock pot ingredients and cook all day.
