Sweet and Brown Sauerkraut


This is my Signature Recipe! It is asked for at Potluck-Dinners by people who once tasted it, even those who don't care for Sauerkraut are now asking me to bring it.













Low Cholesterol, Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


4 slices bacon
4 tablespoons brown sugar
densely packed
15 ounces sauerkraut
well drained
1 tablespoon garlic
½ large apples
finely cubed
2 cups water
from tap


Fry the bacon in a medium-sized pot until crunchy.

Add brown sugar, stir it for a little while and add all the other ingredients. Stir and cover with lid.

Cook on Low for 1 to 2 hrs. Check it frequently to stir it and add more water in order not to burn it.

After 1 hour I usually taste it whether it needs more brown sugar, some Sauerkraut brands are more tart than others.

Serve it hot.

Leftovers can be refrigerated and served later. It also tastes good served cold as a snack. Enjoy!

Sounds delicious....I will try it this weekend as I'm hosting a family dinner with roast pork as the main meat.

I made this tonight. I didn't have an apple, so, I just used 1/2 cup of applesauce, instead. I'm not a sauerkraut fan, but, I will say I am now!

I made this tonight. It was excellent!! The only thing I did different was i drained the bacon grease before adding the rest of the ingredients. I will be making this again for sure. Thanks!

Do you remove the grease from bacon before adding other ingredients?

Can you add this to a crackpot with your pork? Or do we need to keep separate?
