Where to Buy Sauerkraut?

uwsister Jul 9, 2012 09:54 PM

Husband wants good sauerkraut and is sending me out on a mission to find it - where should I go? I can go anywhere in Manhattan, though EV/LES would be preferable. Anybody have an idea? Thanks in advance!

    I quite enjoy boar's head's kraut (available in bags, which is kind of weird). Its not the fanciest/artisinal/whathaveyou but for something i can pick up at the local supermarket without a trip to a specialty store its good - good sized shreds of flavorfully sour cabbage.

      The Pickle Guys at Grand & Essex sell sauerkraut. I've never had it, but I've liked everything I've bought from there, so I assume the sauerkraut is also good.

        East Village Meat Shop on 2nd Ave and 10th Street has it and most likely the Hungarian shop (Yorkville Meats) on 2nd Ave and 80 most likely does, too. (I'm assuming you mean already prepared. At either of these places, you can good quality canned or jarred versions which will be improved if you simmer them with white wine or dry vermouth and a few pieces of granny smith apple.)

          The Hungarian shop is closed, however Schaller & Weber is in the same neighborhood and has a few good varieties of sauerkraut.
