    Family point blank refuse to eat the bacon out of the freezer because it was made last year.
    I hate waste so I am going to do a version of a German style boiled salt pork with short cut sauerkraut .
    I saw Rick Stein do it on the TV recently. He was trying to do version of the pork knuckle so revered in Munich. Locals like it ,salted & boiled ,tourists have it roasted with crisp skin.
    Rick did it with unsmoked cured pork belly I will use what I have .

    I don't know how that all went on as a quote?
    Simple recipe, very winter food . Not that it's cold by Northern Hemisphere standards but Aussies book holidays in the tropics if the daytime temp falls below 10 c.

    This was a nice change from a lot of my regular cookery.
    Poaching the bacon with the aromatics gave it some lovely flavours ,left the fat in the pot as well.
    Saurkraut gave it a nice sharp contrast to the brown sugar in the broth.
    I suppose I could have had a couple of litres of Pilsner with it .in keeping with the German vibe but I had a great Cabernet Sauvignon instead.
