Sauerkraut Filled Varenyky – Suburbangrandma Recipe

Sauerkraut is basically pickled cabbage.  You either like it or hate it…I happen to love using sauerkraut in cooking and baking.

Not all sauerkraut tastes the same, so if you are not a big fan of it, maybe you should try different dishes prepared with this vegetable.

For this recipe I used really tasty sauerkraut….Bavarian style sauerkraut, which I purchased at Shop Rite, my local grocery.

It is so tasty, I can eat it just the way it is…right out of the jar…..has a slightly sweet taste..I highly recommend it.

It is definitely “labor of love” for those who make them from scratch, as it requires several hours of preparation time, but it is so well worth it.
