1 tbs Raisins
1 tsp Dill Weed
1 Chicken Bullion Cube
2 tbs Tomato Paste
1/4 cup Red Wine

Method:
Rinse sauerkraut to lessen the sour taste.
In a large pot, combine the shredded cabbage, sliced mushrooms, shredded carrots, dill, chicken bullion, tomato paste, raisins, bay leaf, and red wine.
Add 2 quarts of water to keep the mixture wet and prevent from burning.
Cook on low heat and stir.
Dice up meats in bite sized pieces and add to the pot.
Stir well.
When the sauerkraut is rinsed to desired sourness, add to the pot and mix well.
While simmering, mix occasionally to incorporate the ingredients to ensure even cooking.
Add water as needed during the simmering process.  Simmer on low for 3 to 4 hours stirring occasionally.
After simmering process, cook Bigos to a stew like consistency.

    Parents and teachers know school supplies don't come cheap. Many teachers even buy school supplies out-of-pocket. But now, a new Detroit company is doing more than selling school supplies - they're also giving back.
