Etymology[edit]

From Alsatian Alemannic German surkrut (standard German Sauerkraut). The first part of the word was modified by folk etymology to French chou ‎(cabbage). Since -croute (krut, German Kraut) is that part of the Germanic word that indeed means “cabbage”, the French form quite literally is “cabbage-cabbage”.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

choucroute f ‎(countable or uncountable, plural choucroutes)

  1. sauerkraut (a dish made by fermenting finely chopped cabbage)
