Tastes good. At the end, you may want to season to taste; I find seasoning is diminished by the slow cooking process. I didn't have apple sauce, and I didn't want to buy a whole jar just to get a few table spoons, so I grated an apple into the sauerkraut. Worked fine. My shanks had the skins still on, so I slit them before cooking. It made slipping the bones free a breeze, and getting to the meat a lot easier.
