One of my favorite dishes growing up was Kielbasa and Sauerkraut. I add half a teaspoon of honey to cut through some of the bitterness and the caramelized onions help with that too. Fermented food is so good for you and I used turkey kielbasa, which has half the calories of beef or pork. It was a delicious, hearty dinner that cost around $0.50 per serving.
