    I agree with Parsley, a nice balance of flavors. The sausage was a sun dried tomato chicken sausage and 2 granny smith apples. The brown sugar was Splenda brown sugar blend and apple cider in place of the apple juice. This was served with sourdough bread and recipe #226071.

    A great balance of sweet and sour. I doubled the sauerkraut because I had a 28-oz can on hand. I used turkey kielbasa and HoneyCrisp apples. Delicious! Thanx for posting this one; it's a keeper!

    This was very good, and quick to put together. I liked the apple juice over the top. Wasn't sure where to put the other half of the kraut so it ended up on top of everything. The brown sugar and apple juice sort of coated everything with a yummy glaze, and there was just the right amount of caraway. Thanks for posting!
