Why eat pork and kraut on New Year’s Day?
Legend has it that pork is a sign of well-being, nourishment, progression and good luck. In addition, many say that “a pig roots forward, unlike chickens who scratch back.” It’s an old Pennsylvania Dutch tradition that we’ve grown up with in celebration of the New Year.
You may think the backstory is silly, but what better reason to enjoy a heaping plate of pork and sauerkraut after a joyful holiday season to help bring in the New Year?! So, whether you’re superstitious and looking to kick the new year off right, or just a believer in one GREAT slow cooker dish, this one’s for you!
