Sauerkraut with Apples

In honor of Oktoberfest, here is a typical German side Dish.

  • 2 pounds Sauerkraut, drained
  • 2 Sweet Onions, sliced
  • 2 medium Apples, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Bacon Drippings or Crisco type Shortening
  • 2 cups dry White Wine
  • 1 whole Carrot, peeled
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 2 whole Cloves
  • a few whole Black Peppercorns
  • a dash of Caraway Seeds

Heat the grease in a heavy skillet, add onions and apples. Saute for about 5 minutes. Add sauerkraut and wine and bring to boil. Add the remaining ingredients. Simmer on low heat for 1 1/2 hours. Remove carrot and bay leaves. Pairs well with sausages, potatoes, beer and wine. Guten Appetit!
