Arrange frankfurters side by side. Using a large needle and string, sew through all the frankfurters 1/2" from the top. Using a second piece of string, sew through all the frankfurters 1/2" from the bottom. Tie the ends of the top string together, bring the first and last frankfurter of the row together. Repeat with the bottom string. Stand frankfurters on end to form a crown. Fill the center with sauerkraut. Bake in a moderate oven (375F) for about 20 minutes. Serves 10.
