    Sweet Kraut

    3 pounds sauerkraut -- drained & chopped
    1 red papper -- diced
    1 green pepper -- diced
    3 stalks celery -- diced
    1 large red onion -- diced


    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1/2 cup salad oil -- peanut oil is nice
    2/3 cup white vinegar
    1/3 cup water
    1 level tsp. caraway seeds

    Combine sauerkraut & diced vegetables.

    Heat & stir dressing ingredients until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture well blended. Pour hot dressing over the vegetable mixture & toss to combine. Refrigerate 24 hours before serving. You really MUST make this a day ahead. Right after you make it you'll find it "eh", but the next day it is fantastic. Great for potlucks & picnics where mayo is suspect. Perfect for slawburgers, with Dusseldorf mustard. Keeps well in the fridge, which is why the recipe is for a large batch. It wouldn't last otherwise.
