One of our favorite side dishes is hot sauerkraut, delicious served with pork or bockwurst - a mild German sausage.
You can also make a sandwich with toasted or grilled dark rye bread, melted Jack, havarti, or Muenster cheese, the sauerkraut, and avocado.
Juniper berries are berries from the juniper shrub; they are traditionally used with sauerkraut.

10 juniper berries, cracked
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Cook all the ingredients together:
Place sauerkraut in a pot. Add wine, onion, apple, juniper berries, salt, pepper and oil. Bring to a simmer and let simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, until the onions are soft.
