Amish sauerkraut soup

Yield: 10 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Smoked sausage (Kielbasa)
6 tablespoons Onion; chopped
¼ cup Flour
½ teaspoon Thyme
½ teaspoon Black pepper
3 cups Milk
1 cup Half-and-half
8 ounces Sauerkraut, with juice
1½ tablespoon Lemon juice (optional)
2 tablespoons 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 minutes.

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 Marcia Adams.
