Take a pound or more of
smoked pork, ham or smoked pork hooks and cook it. Take the meat out, if
you want, separate the fat and cut up the rest. Add a pound of pork meat,
one large diced onion, diced garlic, caraway seed, marjoram, dried
mushrooms, one small can of tomato paste, few dried plums, and a jar of
sauerkraut. You cook it for few hours and add couple of Hungarian farmer
sausages. You can also make a soup thickener, sautéed flour in butter
with red hot powdered pepper. Than cut up the pork and put back the smoked
meat. The sausage is sliced just prior to serving. We usually eat the
sauerkraut soup with good European style rye or sour dough bread.
The sauerkraut soup gets better tasting after each re-heating, so we
usually cook our sauerkraut soup few days before Christmas.
