Sauerkraut with franks dinner Sauerkraut is a German dish manly consumed is cold weather. The name means sauer (sour) kraut (cabbage). This dish is very nutritional and yet easy to make. My parents lived in Germany for many years and they brought with them lots of German traditions and recipes, including the sauerkraut. That was our Sunday comfort food.
