Apple and Sauerkraut Sausage

1-recipe_card

This is another recipe from the Oklahoma Natural Gas Company, published in 1995. It’s everything I love in a family dinner: simple, substantial, and flavorful. The flavor balance is fairly good, with the savory sausage and fermented sauerkraut underlying the fruity sweetness of the apples. Caraway seeds add subtlety to the mix.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound kielbasa sausage, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 (32-ounce) can sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups chopped apples (I combined Red Delicious and Golden Delicious because those were what I had in the refrigerator)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds

Directions:

Stir in all of the remaining ingredients, and mix until the brown sugar dissolves.

Cover and simmer for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the apples are tender.
