My grandparents were German immigrants and oxtail soup or boiled cow's tongue were common meals.

My mother did this, too. Years ago I saw sauerkraut juice being sold in small cans but I don't know what the purpose of marketing it this way would be unless to drink it.
It's a killer laxative. Every German I knew growing up always drank raw sauerkraut juice. Every butcher shop had raw sauerkraut in a barrel and would sell you more kraut, less juice, or vice versa.

Re Nodak's post above, I still love thin slices of cow's tongue. We also always had head cheese, which my uncle made.

Potato chips with plain cottage cheese spread on (not dipped into) them.

It's an interesting combo.

Put bologna and tomatoes on that sandwich and I'm loving it.
