Making the Most of Holiday Leftovers - Articles Surfing


Holiday time means turkey, and turkey usually means leftovers. Now you can jazz up roast turkey and watch it disappear.

The Reuben Tortilla offers another opportunity to savor the holiday leftovers. It's easy to make, and thanks to sauerkraut, it's healthy.

Sauerkraut ' traditionally a staple of German cuisine ' contains chemical compounds thought to prevent several cancers such as colon, lung, and breast cancer. A Michigan State University women's health study observed that Polish women accustomed to a lifelong sauerkraut-heavy diet were 74 percent less likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer than their American counterparts. The study was presented during the November 2005 American Association for Cancer Research's 'Annual Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research' meeting.

Once the leftover turkey and Reuben Tortillas are gone, take advantage of sauerkraut's versatility and use it during your next holiday party as an ingredient in contemporary hors d'oeuvres such as Sauerkraut-Stuffed Mushroom Caps. Also, sauerkraut juice can be used to mix dirty martinis and Bloody Marys.
