New Year’s Chucrut Recipe

New Year’s Chucrut Recipe

A traditional German recipe with a French twist for bringing blessings, good health and wealth in the New Year… and a tradition of Surfers Supplies Founder, George Gerlach… carried on by Gregory Beck (“Pepper”), to bring people together and perhaps scrub off a hangover on New Year’s Day.




8 cloves of garlic

Fresh rosemary

1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard

1 cup white wine (any white wine, just not cooking wine…)

8 red bliss potatoes

1 bag sauerkraut, strained

1 yellow onion

Olive Oil

-Brown the Bratwurst, Knotworst and Kielbasa in a large pot with Olive Oil

-After the meats are browned, add sliced onion, chopped potatoes, rosemary, Dijon mustard, white wine and sauerkraut.

-Simmer on low heat for a couple of hours…

Yummy when served with a French baguette…. Bon Appétit!

Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year…Enjoy!
