Choucroute (Sürkrüt)

©ADT Bas-Rhin - Marcel EHRHARD
This form of pickled cabbage is finely sliced and fermented. 75% of French production comes from Alsace. "Choucroute garnie" is sauerkraut cooked in white wine with a selection of salted and smoked meats, pork meats and potatoes. Pork is the most commonly used meat, but goose is also used, as is fish.
