1 sweet onion
3 tablespoons butter
2 medium apples, peeled
1 (14-oz) can sauerkraut, drained
1 package (2 long links) smoked sausage or turkey sausage
1-1/2 cups unsweetened apple juice
Begin by halving a sweet onion longwise and then slicing the halves into slivers. Saute over medium heat with a little butter for about fifteen minutes, or until the onions are just starting to brown a little. While onions are cooking, take a couple of apples and chop them into small (but not tiny) slivers.
Next, slice smoked sausage into bite-sized rounds. Drain a can of sauerkraut and add to the cooked onions, along with the apples and sausage pieces. Pour apple juice over the whole mixture.
Simmer the mixture over medium heat for at least fifteen minutes.
Serve in stew bowls or covered individual casserole dishes.
