Rosoff's sauerkraut

I used to be able to get this brand of bottled fresh kraut at Stop & Shop, but haven't seen it in some time. Shaw's only carries Ba-Tamte, which I don't find as tasty. Is there anyplace in Boston or Brookline that still carries Rosoff's? With the cool weather this week I'm planning to make a batch of szegedin goulash for dinner Friday night, and I need some good kraut!

      I bought a big jar at BJ's a couple of weeks ago.

      1. re: onefineleo

        The only place I see it anymore is BJ's also (the one in Stoneham has it)

        1. re: phonelady

          Anyone seen it at the Framingham BJ's? We're headed there this Sunday.

      2. haven't checked but i would think the butcherie would be a good bet.

          Nope, they don't carry it, at least not the two times I checked there last year.

          They do have a pretty decent brand from NY which I have used (Russo's also carries a different good fresh kraut from NY), but I have local pride and would prefer to use the Rosoff's.

        2. I too miss my Rosoff's kraut... I am happy to hear it can be found at BJ's because I just assumed they went out of business or stopped making the product. It is the best kraut ever... I can eat it right out of the jar!

          1. It's funny how, when reminded. you miss somehing you use to always have when growing up. I use to love Rosoff's and forgot all about it. Now I'm obsessed with finding it again. I did some online searching, and it came up that a deli in Worcester has it. Tom's International Deli (508) 755-7295

              I bought some last week at Bay State Job Lots on Route 1 in "Norwood?".

              1. re: gardgen

                As an alternative, Ocean State Job Lots has some decent sauerkraut from Germany and Poland from time to time. It isn't fresh, but is a nice change from some of the over-salted and vinegared grocery store stuff that comes in plastic bags.

            2. Confirmed Rosoff's Sauerkraut sighting today at the BJ's in Dedham on Rt. 1.

              A couple of weeks ago at the same BJs, I bought a huge glass jars of Rosoff half-sour pickles which were OMG, so super snappy good, just the exact right color green I like a half-sour to be.
