It’s my family’s tradition to have pork and sauerkraut on New Year’s Day. Eating pork and sauerkraut is an old Pennsylvania Dutch tradition and symbolizes prosperity in the new year. We’re big fans of this meal and it’s usually served with mashed potatoes and applesauce. My husband and I disagree on how to eat it though! I like to mix my sauerkraut with mashed potatoes and he likes to just eat the sauerkraut plain – either way, it’s so good!
