1 jar or bag of sauerkraut -- (i prefer vlasic in the jar)
1 teaspoon caraway seed -- optional
1 small onion -- finely chopped
1/4 Cup lard
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 medium potato -- grated finely (grate on the smallest side of a grater)

Preparation / Directions:

Drain liquid from sauerkraut (it may be washed off and drained, and once again if it is too sharp), add caraway to taste, if desired, and enough water to cover. Grate the potato on the smallest side of a hand grater, if desired (my sister did not like grated potatoes in her sauerkraut, I did). Cook 20 to 30 minutes. Saut‚‚ onion in a small amount of lard until onion is light brown. Add flour and sugar, if desired, and cook 5 minutes or until slightly thickened and add to sauerkraut. Cook for an additional 5 minutes. This is great with breaded pork tenderloin and dumplings, or roasted pork and dumplings.
