Amish Sauerkraut Soup Recipe
1 lb smoked sausage (kielbasa)
6 tbsp onion, chopped
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp black pepper
3 cup milk
1 cup half-and-half
8 oz sauerkraut, with juice
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice (optional)
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
Chop the sausage coarsely by hand or in a food processor (leave the
casing on). Transfer the sausage and onion to a deep pan, and saute
over medium heat until the sausage is lightly browned, about 8
On a small plate combine the flour, thyme, and pepper. Add to the
sausage and brown all together until the mixture bubbles up, about 5
minutes. Add the milk and the half-and-half all at once, and cook
stirring until the mixture again bubbles up, about 5 minutes. Add
the sauerkraut and it juice and bring to a boil; the mixture will
continue to thicken. Taste for tartness, and lemon juice if desired.
Add the parsley and serve at once. From Cooking from Quilt Country by

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of the food label that claims 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the rear of the can or package. Many are only slightly reduced and in some cases still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
* Dietary fiber is important
Cutting the carbs in your meals usually leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at low carbohydrate recipes that are high in fiber to redress this.
