The Ohio Sauerkraut Festival in Waynesville, Ohio:  The people of Waynesville may debate whether they are the Antiques Capital of the Midwest or the Home of the Sauerkraut Festival but make no mistake, they have lots of both. And some say antiques and sauerkraut saved this little town. Either way, more than 14,000 pounds of sauerkraut are cooked up for the annual festival. Some unique recipes for visitors’ indulgence include cabbage rolls, German sundaes, brownies, doughnuts, and pizza. The local folks urge that just because it’s made with sauerkraut doesn’t mean it tastes like it.
