choucroute garni

Fig. 1. After daylight fades, meat, potatoes and sauerkraut sustain on the longest nights of the year.

The eve of the shortest day of the year calls for slow-simmering pots. Butter. Onions and russet apples. Red cabbage sauerkraut, sour spiced beets, red wine, vegetable stock. Salt and pepper. In that order. Boiled special potatoes from Patrice at la société des plantes + more butter and dill. Spicy smoked sausage with mustard. You're ready for anything.
