I was just wondering if anyone is familiar with Waynesville Ohio's Sauerkraut Fest this weekend or if they would be going? It is a big deal around here and sadly I'm pretty excited for it icon_smile.gif


I can't wait to get a german sundae...and sauerkraut balls....and all the other wonderfully disgusting food that comes along with it.

Okay I have to ask, what are kraut-balls made from?

I'm a German girl (well a 1/4th of me is anyway) so saurkraut makes an apperance at our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners as well as other times of the year. I'm one of those that can eat it straight out of the can with or with out some hot dogs, but my favorite way is the way my grandma makes it.

She rinses the kraut and then puts it in a pan with a little water, chopped onions, mushrooms, salt and pepper. My mom adds a little bacon fat or you can use a piece of pork to cook with it. It mellow the flavor and makes it oh so yummy!!

A saurkraut festival sounds fun!!

Sounds like fun! I live about 2 hours from Helen, GA which is CaRAZY this time of year! We went a few years ago. Most of our friends went off to get their drink on, but DH and I went and pigged out on delicious German food. There's a great bakery there, too. We loaded up on boxed goodies and gorged on those for the next couple of days.

My mom's side of the family is mostly German, so we all get together and celebrate Oktoberfest every year. It is much fun! icon_smile.gif One of my nephews was born in October, so we often celebrate his birthday at our annual event. This year he wants tiramisu for his birthday cake, so we'll be celebrating Oktoberfest with a little Italian flair this year, lol!
