In my opinion, the best sauerkraut (choucroute) is the raw lacto fermented kind that can be found at the Biocoop shops.  It comes in a little bucket and will stay good for quite a while in the refrigerator.

I thought it was the same thing too, although I know some of the really rank German stuff is burried for ages. The french version seems much milder.

So is  Flammekeuche the same as tarte flambee?

They often have it at the deli counter in Carrefour, Guingamp.

I know I'm stupid to point this out , but I grew up in Germany and have lived here 27 odd years and Choucroute is Sauerkraute , the only difference is who cooks it .. Some like it sharper than other is all . I make my own ..

I've only seen it when they have special 'Semaines Alsaciennes', when you can find it at the delicatessen counter.
