Ingredients

How to make it

  • Drain sauerkraut don't rinse. Reserve juice and sauerkraut.
  • Chop the saurkraut to finest shred possible.
  • Soak the imported mushrooms in warm sherry for 20 minutes. Strain mushrooms through a strainer lined with a coffee filter. Reserve liquid and mushrooms.
  • In a heavy sauce pot, heat butter/oil, add onion and cook til translucent.
  • Add flour and cook for a few minutes more to get rid of the raw flour taste. Add the neck bones to the onion/flour/butter mixture. Heat a few minutes while you prepare your bouquet garni.
  • Tie the peppercorns/bay leaf/thyme/parsley in a cheesecloth bag or alternately put them in a tea ball.
  • Add stock to the pot, along with the sauerkraut, mushrooms and bouquet garni.
  • Simmer on low heat for almost two hours. Taste and add sauerkraut juice if you want a stonger piquant flavor.
  • Remove bouquet garni and discard/remove neck bones and discard.
  • In the last five minutes, add sour cream and stir gently and heat over the lowest possible heat. You don't want the sour cream to boil and curdle.
  • Adjust for seasoning, adding salt or pepper.
  • Serve in shallow bowls with an extra dollop of sour cream if desired and minced chives on top for garnish

    I have yet another compliment to pass on re: your soup. I brought a bowl of it in today to a guy I work with that's Ukranian and loves sauerkraut as much as I do. When he finished he came up to me and said "Janet, it tastes like the soup my Mom used to make". Now how is that for high praise! I'm passing him on your recipe! It's so amazing!

    Tina....I keep going back and eyeing up this recipe but I'm daunted by the "Smoked Pork Neck Bone". Wherever am I going to find something like that? Any suggestions? Or any suggestions as to what I could sub if I can't find it?
    Just realized I already asked you this question but due to CRAFT I cannot remember your answer. Sorry.

    I love sauerkraut! I'm going to try this when the weather cools down a bit. My circle of friends are pretty intrepid and they like it when I cook something out of their normal "grab and go". Thanks!
