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

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 ..

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

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?

LOL Sauerkraut is never "buried"  its stored in big jars (above ground) to finish !

Yes Barty its sliced cabbage brewed in a vinegar solution in its uncooked or cooked state !

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.
