Kidneys, who needs those? That’s what detractors would say. Translated literally from German as sour cabbage, sauerkraut is more commonly known as the food that could really use a suntan served on the side of pork sausage. But as a drink? A juice? Don’t come to my door for Halloween kids, for I’ve found a sodium-filled alternative.
It’s that sodium which helped make sauerkraut popular in Europe hundreds of years ago during the winter months, for it could preserve nutrient-filled foods such as this rotund vegetable. Nice, though scurvy isn’t making a comeback these days, so there’s no need to pollute our pantry shelves with leafy liquid laxatives.
Wait, I’ll be fair. There are worse beverages out there, though what would you pair sauerkraut juice with? Sausage still? Unsalted pretzels? Nothing? Let us know your thoughts!
