I kick off the lunar new year by making you drool.
Here, in seventeen images, I've tried to capture the process of making yesterday's delectable choucroute alsacienne. Hover your cursor over the images to see the captions. If you're viewing this post on a smart phone, then I'm sorry, but you won't be able to see the title text. All the images have a width of 300 pixels, so there will be no "click to enlarge" here. (The original images were 2300 pixels wide.)
Damn—that sauerkraut recipe is a keeper. And it's so, so easy to make.
Happy Lunar New Year! You can't imagine how ecstatic I am that I'm once again able to cook.
