At this time of year a soup made from sauerkraut is very popular in Slovak homes. It takes a lot of time to prepare and cooks for long hours, but for many Slovaks kapustnica is one of the important flavors and smells of the Christmas season. Linked here is a recipe posted last year from my favorite kapustnica cook – Pani Stefka, the lunch lady at “the Lyceum” – the school I used to teach at in Bratislava.
