I decided to create this blog, to replace my old one I had and was losing interest in and thinking and having things to post. Looking at my stats, I saw there was a lot of interest in my recipes I had posted. I do love to cook and have lots of recipes to talk about and post, and so decided to create this blog specifically for those of us that love to create in the kitchen! I hope you will follow this blog and be sure to tell your friends and family if you like what you see here. If you have a recipe you wish to submit, email me at jcdec63@msn.com and I will post it. Thanks for visiting! Granny J :D

Bavarian Sauerkraut Supper

2 strips bacon
1 T. flour
2 lg. cans sauerkraut
1 potato, peeled
1 apple, unpeeled
2 T. brown sugar
1 tsp. caraway seed(optional)  I don't usually use it because my husband doesn't like caraway...::P
2lbs. Polish sausage
I drain my sauerkraut and rinse, I think it makes a better taste to the meal, but you don't have to if you like that flavor.  Cut bacon into cubes and fry until crisp.  Blend flour into bacon drippings.  Add the drained sauerkraut and barely cover with water.  Cube the potato and the apple and add to the sauerkraut along with the caraway seed.  Sprinkle with brown sugar.  Add Polish sausage.  Cover and cook 1 hour at simmer.  Makes 6 servings.  For smaller servings, you can use 2 small cans of sauerkraut and 1 lb sausage.
