My boyfriend made this recipe for me for my birthday this past year. Because he is Polish and I am German, it would only be right to combine to two in a dish. Lets just say I was blown away by his cooking and this recipe! You can have this on top of roasted potatoes or just with a slice of toasted bread The apple aroma fit so well with the fall season outside!

“With this recipe I put a unique German spin on a traditional Polish recipe from my Great Grandmother from Krakow. This German version has a heightened taste of apple and more of a sweet flavor than the traditional Polish Kielbasa”
What you need:
3 packages of Kielbasa with 2 links in each package
1 package of Sauerkraut ( 2 ounces)
2-3 cups of apple cider ( less than 2 cups for less acidity, more than 3 cups for a sweeter flavor)
1/4 of an onion cut into thin pieces
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
Cut the 6 sausages into 5 pieces from each link. Turn the crock pot on medium and pour in the sauerkraut, apple cider, onions and brown sugar. Mix well. After ingredients are mixed together add in the sausage cuts. Make sure they are fully submerged in the sauerkraut mix for up to 5 hours before serving.
After cooking the Kielbasa for 5 hours, the sausage will literally melt in your mouth over top the delicious sweetened sauerkraut! Enjoy!
