This recipe is from Fredericksburg, TX which was settled in the 1840's by Germans who came over with a German prince who wanted to establish a colony in the New World. After a few years the prince got bored and returned to Europe, but his fellow Germans stayed behind. This was printed in a cookbook published on the 125th anniversary of Fredericksburg. You can also use weinkraut, which I would, but Recipezaar has never heard of it.
- 1 pint sauerkraut
- 1 medium sized apple, cut into small cubes
- 1 potato, peeled, & cut into small cubes
- 1 onion, cut into small cubes
- 2 cups hot water
- 2 tablespoons bacon drippings or 3 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
- 8 hot dogs (optional)
- Place the cubed apple, potato, and onion in a saucepan along with the hot water. Boil until vegetables are soft, about 10 minutes.
- Add the sauerkraut or weinkraut and the bacon drippings or the bacon. Cover and simmer for about 2 hours. About 10 minutes before dish is done, add the hot dogs and replace cover, if wished.
