Tonight the Ackley Volunteer Ambulance Service members will be serving free hot dogs and sauerkraut beginning at 5 p.m. Kraut Cooker Extraordinaire, Ronnie Brandt, just lit the fires under the kraut cooker and it’s warming up now! Ronnie’s grandsons, Ryan and Luke Lindaman are assisting him this year. Brandt has been cooking the kraut for over 20 years and each year lights the cookers promptly at 11 a.m. You know it’s Sauerkraut Days when Main Street smells like sauerkraut and Ronnie heads to the cookers with the pitch fork he’s used for years to stir the kraut as it warms.
