This dish has German roots, but is widely prepared in Switzerland. I'm not sure exactly where I found this recipe,but it's been DH and grandson's favorite deer hunting camp meal for many years. It cooks in one skillet so clean up is minimal.

I made this for my DH, and if the yummy sounds are any indication, then it is definitely 5 stars! I don't normally like things with cooked apples, but I really liked the mixture of the sour and the sweet here! I used turkey smoked sausgae. This was delicious! ZWT7 - Shady Ladies

I admit it - I wasn't sure how the apple juice, apple & brown sugar would affect this dish, but I jumped in with both feet and was so glad I did! I did do a few things differently. I always taste my saurekraut first, and if it has a strong taste (which it did) I rinse it until the taste is palatable. Since I removed a lot of the "tangy taste" I used only 1 tablespoon of brown SugarTwin in place of the brown sugar. This, along with the apple juice provided a wonderful taste sensation! Next time I make this, I will cut my apple in smaller pieces (it's a texture thing). Oh, I used white fingerling potatoes which I halved. I cooked this in a covered frying pan. Delicious!

Loved this recipe! It was an unusual combination I wasn't too sure about at first but the family and friends loved it and I am very happy I tried something different.
