Choucroute is a traditional dish from Alsace in France, and it is a winter dish because it is rather heavy. You boil the sauerkraut with dry white wine and goose or pork fat, and then served together with sausages, salty meat, and potatoes. This recipe is not a traditional one because it do not have any ham or Strasbourg sausages, instead the choucroute is served with merguez and Montbéliard sausages to give it a bit stronger taste.
