Sauerkraut soup is truelly one of the most common dishes in Lithuanian kitchen. This time I posted a sauerkraut soup recipe, which I usually use when making this tasty soup. I want to mention, that the tastiest sauerkraut soup is when you don’t use the broth cubes from the supermarket, and instead you just cook some pork ribs or a piece of pork belly in the soup. At least this is how my grandmother is always making this traditional soup. Of course, tastier than my grandmother’s sauerkraut soup I hardly ever will succeed to make… Anyways, time to time I make the sauerkraut soup according to this recipe even I am living in the United States right now.
It’s that not difficult to find good sauerkraut in America, you just have to visit one of the Russian supermarkets. Of course, the price is way different than in Lithuania, but when you want to cook a dish from your own country, it's not that important.
Soup’s acidity and salinity adjust by yourself because everyone has their own taste for soups. If you have never made the sauerkraut soup before in your life, I highly recommend to try in your kitchen right now. 🙂
Note: Some sour cream goes perfectly with this soup!
