Barbara Martinez Sauerkraut


  • 2-3 slices of bacon diced and browned
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 5-6 Juniper Berries (NOT from juniperus virginiana)
  • 1 apple, cored and chopped
  • 1 jar of Sauerkraut
  • 1+ cup of white wine (optional)
  • 1+ cup of apple juice (optional)


Brown the onions after the bacon has been cooked into crunchy pieces, add the remaining items, add water or wine or apple juice and cook until done,  about 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally. If you like a sweeter kraut, rinse it before cooking. I usually let most of the liquid cook away until the kraut is almost dry.
