SAUERKRAUT AND PINEAPPLE SALAD
2 c. drained kraut
1 large can pineapple chunks
1/2 c. sour cream
1/4 c. seedless raisins
1/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
Toss together overnight. [This direction is verbatim. I picture the weary housewife tossing these ingredients all night while the rest of the family soundly sleeps.]
Side note: St. Maurice is the parish where I went to Catholic school in the sixties, with the nuns in full habit, and no girls in pants (my mother was called to bring a skirt to school the day I daringly wore culottes!). The correct pronunciation of the name in Pittsburgh is mahr-iss, not mah-rees or mor-ris. St Maurice was an Egyptian who led the Roman Theban Legion in the 3rd century to an area that is now part of Switzerland. The legend is that his entire legion of 6,666 men was ordered killed by Maximium for their refusal to battle fellow Christians; St. Maurice became the patron saint of soldiers, swordsmiths, and armies. Also, as per Wikipedia, "he is also inexplicably the patron saint of weavers and dyers, and is invoked against menstrual cramps." Hmmmm.
