700 ml sauerkraut

1 onion, roughly chopped

1 spiced dry sausage

150 g ham

Handful of dried porcini, steeped in cold water

1 clove garlic

1 tablepsoon all-purpose flour

2 tablepsoons vegetable oil

1 tablepsoon powdered sweet paprika

1 tablepsoon dark raisins or 1 tablepsoon prune jam

2 l boiling water

Preparation

  • In a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons oil and fry the chopped onion. Add flour and stir until well-blended.
  • Add paprika and immediately pour in the boiling water (or else the paprika would burn and become bitter). Stir and bring to a boil.
  • Add dried porcini, sausage and ham. Cook under a lid until ham and sausage are tender (10 to 20 minutes depending on size).
  • Take out the ham ans sausage when ready and set aside.
  • Add sauerkraut to the soup and cook under a lid until sauerkraut is tender, depending on type of sauerkraut.
  • We cooked ours for almost an hour, but if the sauerkraut was initially tender, it might be done in 15 minutes!
  • When the sauerkraut is almost ready, add grated garlic and prune jam. Check if you need to season the soup with salt.
  • Cut the cooked ham and sausage into pieces. Return them into saucepan and remove saucepan from heat.
