Sauerkraut is one of those foods that seems to have been given its own holiday. Much in the way pumpkin owns Halloween and ham owns Easter, sauerkraut is supreme on New Year’s Day.
The Amish have adopted this food trend as much as anyone else. You’ll see plenty of pork and sauerkraut in Amish kitchens on New Year’s Day. The food signifies luck and the way the world has gone the past few years we could all use a bit of that, so if sauerkraut can help bring it, bring on the sauerkraut.
