Polish Sauerkraut and Apples

One of the dishes I like every once in awhile is sauerkraut. Usually I'll have it with either a good bratwurst sausage or if the only thing I have are weiners, that will do in a pinch. I've even tried making homemade sauerkraut but sadly with no luck.

The following recipe uses kielbasa, apples, and apple juice for a really great tasting dish.


  • 1 - 14 Oz. can sauerkraut (rinsed and well drained)

  • 1 Lb. fully cooked polish sausage or kielbasa (cut into 2" thick rounds)

  • 3 Med. tart apples (peeled and cut into eighths)

  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar

  • 1/2 Tsp. caraway seeds (optional)

  • 1/8 Tsp. pepper

  • 3/4 Cup apple juice

Place half of the sauerkraut in an ungreased crock pot. Top with sausage, apples, brown sugar, caraway seeds (if desired) and pepper. Top with remaining sauerkraut. Pour apple juice over everything and cover. Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or until apples are tender.
