Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 can (14-oz) sauerkraut, rinsed and drained well
1 lb smoked sausage, cut into chunks
3 medium Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into eight wedges each
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp caraway seeds (or use Bavarian-style kraut instead of regular)
dash of freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup apple juice

This recipe works best in a 3-quart cooker.

Layer half the sauerkraut in the bottom of the cooker; top with (in order given) sausage, apples, brown sugar, caraway seeds, and pepper.  Spread the remaining sauerkraut over the top.  Pour the apple juice overall.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or until the apples are tender.
