   1 1/2 lb Pork shoulder
   1 lb Knackwurst
   1 lb Italian sausage
   1 lb Bacon
   3 lb Sauerkraut
   8    Juniper berries
   2 tb Gin
   1/2 c  Wine, white
   
   An Alsatian sauerkraut and meat dish
   
   Polish sausage may be substituted for Italian sausage.
   
   Cover bacon strips with boiling water; set aside  Cut
   pork into 1 chunks. Slice knackwurst and Italian
   sausages in half. Combine pork, knackwurst, and
   sausages and set aside.  Drain sauerkraut, rinse in
   cold water and squeeze dry.  Drain bacon and pat dry.
   Chop bacon. Mix into sauerkraut and add crushed
   juniper berries and gin.  Add half of sauerkraut
   mixture to crockpot, then add mixed meats and
   remaining sauerkraut, sprinkling with pepper as you
   go.  Pour wine over all and cover.  Cook about 2 hours
   on High.

   Serve with boiled potatoes.  Pass around mustard  or
   horseradish, if you wish.
   
   Sylvia’s comments: cook on HIGH?  In a crockpot?  Then
   what’s the point? I cooked it all day on LOW and
   everything was falling apart. I have a similar recipe
   that includes apples and brown sugar that I like
   better; this is great for someone who favors bitter
   tastes, I served it with applesauce which cut the
   bitterness well and the result was delicious.
