Sauerkraut with Apples Recipe

Sauerkraut with Apples Recipe

Still looking for that perfect Thanksgiving side dish this year? We’ve got you covered; Sauerkraut with Apples.

It’s tang perfectly counters the round, hearty flavors of such Thanksgiving staples & sauerkraut heated on the grill (for a kiss of smoke) can make an excellent accompaniment to roasted chicken, wild game, or sockeye salmon.  Aside from its versatility and great taste, sauerkraut is a well-known ‘superfood,’ recommended atop the list of foods to include in a healthy diet.

The nice thing is that you can season it many ways, like this:

We buy a high quality pre-made sauerkraut.  A good purchase will be loaded in probiotics, which can help to regulate gut health.  Place it in a strainer and rinse well to get the extra salt off.   While the excess water is draining, slice a sweet red apple (gala, braeburn, or fujis do nicely).  Put them in the bottom of a glass baking dish.  Add the sauerkraut and coat with 1 cup red wine vinegar.  Add a tablespoon of allspice, or cinnamon.  Toss thoroughly and bake on indirect, medium-high heat, around 450F for 30-40 minutes.  Stir occasionally.  The smell will be fantastic, and if you let it get a bit extra-done on the edges, you’ll have it perfectly good and slightly sweetened.
