This is the recipe that we had, growing up, when nobody knows what to cook or eat and it was my grandfather favour meal, he was always first to request, except he called Sour potatoes because he will always add extra vinegar in his. In the summer we will have with Boston lettuce salad which we called Butter lettuce salad and simple vinaigrette with garlic, in the winter it will be sauerkraut salad. It is vegan dish but sometimes my grandmother did add smoked sausages to the recipe too. —anka
