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
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.

* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. Many are only a little less and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are just the same.
* Fiber is crucial
Lowering the carbohydrates in your diet usually results in fiber reduction as well. Look at reduced carb recipes that are fiber-rich to redress this.
