Rome family members and friends put sauerkraut in jars in one of the final steps in a process of preparing it to sell at more than 100 stores and outlets in Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska, as well as festivals on online. Ray Rome, of Olathe, said his family processes the sauerkraut made from his great grandfather's recipe once a year in the state certified commercial kitchen at Antiques on the Prairie.

It's fitting the extended Rome family prepares its sauerkraut in the commercial kitchen at Antiques on the Prairie in downtown Baldwin City. It might seem strange to prepare and jar sauerkraut in a kitchen that shares space in a building that was once a grocery store. But, Ray Rome, of Olathe, said his family was making sauerkraut in Kansas before many of the antiques in the adjoining store were made.
