For your New Year’s Dining…

1: Pork and Sauerkraut. Not only do pork and sauerkraut taste good together, they’ll bring you good luck if eaten together on New Year’s Day, according to the Pennsylvania Dutch. The reason is that pigs are forward-thinking creatures—all four hooves point forward and they root forward—and the long strands of sauerkraut symbolize long life. If you’re so inclined, make your own sauerkraut, and use it in this recipe for Alsatian Smoked Pork Chops and Sauerkraut, which tastes just as good with a traditional glass of New Year’s bubbly as it does with sparkling apple cider.
