Polish Kraut and Apples Recipe

My family loves this hearty, heartwarming meal on cold winter nights. The tender apples, brown sugar and smoked sausage gave this dish fantastic flavor. I like making it because the prep time is very short. #151;Caren Markee, Crystal Lake, Illinois

"Love this! Have made it twice and it is excellent. I cook it on the stovetop for about 30 minutes and serve it with boiled potatoes. Would also be good with pierogis."

"I made this with turkey bratwurst instead of Polish sausage, and Cranberry juice instead of apple juice. It came out wonderfully amazing."

"This recipe was good but not great. The apples did not keep their shape and it's possible that my crockpot was too high because it seemed overcooked."
