This is our version of sauerkraut but we think it is far more interesting due to the addition of leeks (we use foraged sea leeks when they are in season - see the jar label for details), together with a healthy amount of bay and juniper. Enjoyable as a cold salad or you can add a little white wine and slow-braise before partnering with pork in a similar manner to the Alsatian classic choucroute garnie.
