Intro: Slovak Smoked Sausage and Sauerkraut Soup (kapusta Polievka)
Years and years ago when I spent my first christmas with my girlfriends parents, (her father is hungarian, her mother is slovak, she herself was born in bratislava slovakia,) her dad made sauerkraut soup.
I was dubious at first, but I'm ALWAYS game to try new ethnic food, and after a healthy dollop of sour cream, I dove in and fell in love with slovak/eastern european food with the first bite.
What follows is a quick guide on how to make slovak sour kraut soup. if you have never had it, you are in for a treat.
