Baked Sauerkraut With Apples

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Mrs B

This German recipe is borrowed (with a tweak) from The original recipe calls for 120ml beef stock, but I wanted a vegetarian version. You could revert to the beef stock or replace my suggested vegetable stock with a small amount (say ½ teaspoon) of Marmite or Vegemite dissolved in 120ml of very hot water.

very good, we liked it a lot! Just made half a recipe for the two of us and served it with turkey/onion sausage and mash potatoes. the celery seed and the wine really make the recipe. We enjoyed it very much and will make it again, thanks for posting.
