Yields10 ServingsCook Time1 hr

Here's a tangy sausage and sauerkraut dish your family will enjoy. Serve this sauerkraut dish with hot baked biscuits or crusty rolls. I like this dish a little sweet, but feel free to cut back on the sugar to suit your own taste.

 1 large onion, quartered and sliced
 2 tbsp vegetable oil
 2 large apples, peeled, cored, and diced
 2 cups apple juice
 1 tbsp vinegar
 4 tbsp light brown sugar
 2 lbs cold pack sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
 2 lbs John F. Martin smoked sausage or smoked kielbasa
 ¼ tsp ground black pepper
 1 tsp caraway seeds, or to taste, optional

Heat oven to 425 F.


In a large ovenproof saute pan or Dutch oven over medium heat, saute the onion and sliced sausages in vegetable oil until onion is golden and sausage is lightly browned, about 5 to 7 minutes.


Add the apples and saute for 1 minute longer.


Add apple juice, vinegar, brown sugar, sauerkraut, and pepper.


Add caraway seeds, if using.


Cover and bake for 1 hour.


Serve with crusty rolls or biscuits and a tossed salad.
