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.
