Sweet ‘n’ Sour Polish Sausage

Since my sister, Evelyn Brower, shared this recipe with me, I've made it for many gatherings. It can be cooked in a skillet, then transferred to a slow cooker to keep warm.

    Good kid friendly dish. My 13 year old son prepared as directed. A nice change from regular sausage recipe. It is very sweet and the sauce is very thick. Great way for young chefs to begin following directions and knife skills.
