A rant about a jar of sauerkraut I bought yesterday

Howard-2 | Mar 15, 2006 04:19 PM

Yesterday I bought a jar of Ba-Tampte sauerkraut. I took one taste and spit it out.

Some idiot had put sugar and vinegar in it! So much so, in fact, that the label shows a significant number of carbs per serving.

What ever happened to good old-fashioned honest sauerkraut? Sauerkraut is fermented cabhbage--PERIOD. It has no vinegar, and certainly no sugar! The last time I tasted Ba-Tempte sauerkraut (probably 10 years ago) I don't recall that it contained sugar and vinegar.

I can't imagine what caused the company to start adding sugar and vinegar. Has the public taste become so badly corrupted that the public now expects to find sugar in *everything*????
