Recipe: Sauerkraut with Spareribs

Persons who are fond of sauerkraut find the combination of sauerkraut and spareribs very appetizing. The spareribs give the cabbage a very pleasing flavor and at the same time supply nourishment to the dish.

(Sufficient to Serve Six)

  •  1 qt. sauerkraut
  •  2 lb. spareribs
  •  1 tsp. salt
  •  3 c. water

Put the sauerkraut and the spareribs into a kettle and add the salt and water. Allow to simmer slowly for 2 or more hours. If additional water is necessary, add it from time to time. Just before removing from the heat, allow the water to boil down so that what remains may be served with the hot sauerkraut.
