We had this with some Beef Rouladens. It was a good dish, not overly sweet or overly sour. Felt like it was missing a little something for us. Our German neighbor up the street makes a similar dish but starts with some carmelized onions. Great way to dress up saurkraut. Would be good will keilbasa sausage I bet!

Made this for ZWT4. I must admit that I had reservations when I saw the ingredients BUT my DW and I both really enjoyed this dish. I used a Maryland wine and the apples really set this dish off. We are use to "sour" sauerkraut but we both agree that this recipe is our favorite. Thank you for a great recipe.
