Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Sauerkraut With Ham & Sausage


2 lb sauerkraut
2 slices of bacon, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped fine
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
6 juniper berries, crushed
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 lb ham steak in a single slice
1 lb polish sausage
1 pricked in several places
1 with a fork

1. If you like sauerkraut that is relaively sour, do not rinse it but simply sqeeze it dry. If you like it less sour, however, rinse it under cold running water and drain in a colander. Press to extract excess moisture. 2. Heat the bacon in a casserole or dutch oven and cook until rendered of fat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is wilted. 3. Add the sauerkraut. Tie the bay leaf, juniper berries and caraway seeds in a small cheesecloth bag and add it. Add the wine and the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Arrange the ham steak and sausage in or over the sauerkraut. Cover closely and cook 1 hr. 4. Discard the cheesecloth bag. Serve the sauerkraut and meats with boiled potatoes, rye or pumpernickle bread and mustard on the side. This dish: Choucroute garnie
