At Cook's Pantry, we love sauerkraut and we love hot peppers, so naturally we combined the two to make a zingy, zesty kraut that tastes great with sausage, pork or any of your family's traditional recipes. Our sauerkraut is made the old fashioned way, with just salt and water, made in season, and packed straight from the fields in Poland.
Sauerkraut is one of the oldest foods in the world, dating back more than 4,000 years! Workers were fed fermented cabbage while building the Great Wall of China. When Genghis Khan invaded China he added salt for preservation and was so happy with it, that he gave it to his army. The Mongols invaded Asia and parts of Eastern Europe, spreading the word about fermented cabbage and its medicinal purposes. Jewish people are also credited with spreading kraut throughout Europe and Russia.
