This dish is an old favorite and really simple. The only thing I think that has changed, since years ago, are the kielbasa varieties. Now you can choose to purchase kielbasa made with turkey and uncured, without all the preservatives included in the formulas.
Kielbasa & Sauerkraut
1 package Kielbasa (approx. 14-16 ounces)
2 cans Sauerkraut (approx. 15 ounce cans) drained
1 cup Apple Cider or Apple Juice
1 teaspoon each Garlic & Onion Powder (to taste)
Pepper to taste
1 tsp. Caraway seed (optional)
Parsley added for color/garnish
Place sauerkraut in crock pot, add apple juice, stir in spices. Cut up Kielbasa in pieces place on top. Sprinkle with parsley.
Turn crock pot on high for about 3-4 hours, (adjust time depending on your crock pot)
note: Some brands of sauerkraut are stronger and more sour, if you like your sauerkraut less sour, rinse under cold water before placing in crock pot.
