You could tell there was some other ingredient mixed with the kraut since it was not so sour tasting. I left the peel on the Granny Smith apple and you could not tell it when served. I also used a vidalia onion. Myself I'd like a little more caraway seed next time. Made for *ZWT 6* I'm on Team *Ya Ya Cookerhood*
