Halloween Sauerkraut Brownies

I think you may all remember my sauerkraut fetish and how it actually helped to cure my gastritis.

I did this for about a month and knew it was not helping. Soooooo, if you don’t know me by now, you will! I said to my husband, “Well, that’s not happenin’!” I, also, have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and diverticulitis, where pockets in your intestines have had food particles drop in them and get infected.
