This type of dish is new to me, but since trying this recipe and other similar ones I have decided I like it. This recipe particular is really good. The apples and brown sugar add a nice sweetness. I think rasin bread would be good to dip in the juices. This time though I just dished up a serving of the recipe and ate as is. Also, I used turkey smoked sausage and found the dish savory and not "diet tasting". Thanks for a tasty and easy to prepare dinner.

A real taste treat from the "old country". Found a little butcher shop that grinds their own authentic German sausage, and it really adds a full, rich flavor to this recipe. Great with a dark rye bread!

I made this for my co-workers and they just loved it and now with the holidays coming they want the recipe to make for their family. I used beef sausage instead of pork or turkey. I put it in the crockpot before I went to bed and it was ready to take to work in the morning. Some of my co-workes said they didn't like sauerkraut but I asked them to just give it a taste well needless to say by the end of the day there was but a small bowl left and I used my large crockpot. This was easy and most if the items needed I already had in house. I too will be making this for my family, it is a welcomed addition to the holiday meal.

This to me is true comfort food. I followed the recipe but baked it instead of using the crockpot. I cut the recipe back to one serving so it only took 1 1/2 hours at 350 covered with foil for 1 hour uncovered for a half hour. Served with mustard. Loved the recipe

The whole family loved this! I honestly didn't think they would since they are not sauerkraut lovers and not much for unusual food combinations, but the flavors melded so well that they loved the result! I had considered converting this to a saucepan instead of the slow cooker but I'm glad I didn't. It is truly meant for the slow cooker. I did have to substitute cranberry juice for the apple juice as I was out of apple juice.

I have been looking for this recipe for over 50 years. My aunt used to fix this every Christmas Eve for a tree-trimming party at her house for all the family in the area. It was always a success and we all came back for more the next year.

Wonderful, easy recipe! This smelled absolutely delicious when it was cooking. I served it with a side of German potato salad (German Potato Salad) and my apple-cranberry crunch (Apple Cranberry Crunch) for dessert.

Excellent fall recipe! I followed the recipe, but added one peeled, sliced sweet potato, as it needed to be used up. This has a very nice combination of flavors and we will have this again. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

I liked this a lot! I cooked it on high for 4 hours. I served it with a big bowl of mashed potatoes and chowed down. The apples and brown sugar gave it a great taste. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

I made this with Turkey Smoked Sausage. I followed the ingredients and directions as listed. My husband was skeptical, not being a fan of kraut...but he was pleasantly surprised and ended up eating two plates full. The apples sweeten the kraut deliciously. Thanks for the recipe!
