Slow Cooker Sauerkraut Soup


This is a wonderful sauerkraut soup recipe I learned in college. Serve with nice crusty bread. You can make this on the stove or in a slow cooker, whichever one fits your lifestyle. Just make sure you have a 4-quart slow cooker. To make this soup less fattening, omit the cream of chicken soup and one can of water.
