Blackthorn Cider Sauerkraut

My husband and I were vegging out this weekend and watching "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" when his ear caught his favorite word - no, not my name, but Blackthorn Cider. Yes, my husband's favorite drink is Blackthorn Dry Cider that he tries to get every time we go to the local pub. So, he was super excited when he heard a recipe from the Elk Public House that uses his favorite drink as an ingredient in their Reuban sandwich. You can use the sauerkraut on Reubans, hot dogs, sausages, or just as a side dish in your next meal. You can find Blackthorn Dry Cider in most grocery stores like Trader Joe's.
