Serves 2
Prep & cook time: 30 minutes


  • Fresh French baguette or, for a more authentic German take, try Kimmel Bread, Pumpernickel or Rye Sourdough
  • Strong German mustard or Dijon
  • Baby sour or sweet-and-sour Gherkins
  • A glass of chilled Pilsner, Cider, Kombucha or Riesling (wine)


  1. Begin by placing the Caldwell sauerkraut in a colander to remove the excess brine. Set aside
  2. Slice the onion into thin strips. Preheat a pan and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add in the onions and cook over med-low heat making sure the onions do not burn. (You want to slightly caramelise the onions so the sugars are released. The sweetness of the onions will compliment and mellow the tartness of the sauerkraut.)
  3. Meanwhile, dice the apples and add them to the onions. Continue to fry the mixture until the apples are just tender. Add in the drained sauerkraut and heat thoroughly, until the sauerkraut is slightly golden but still crunchy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Prepare the sausages on the stove or on the barbecue and serve with the sauerkraut, bread, mustard, gherkins and a cold drink.


For an authentic flavour, try adding a splash of wine to the sauerkraut. During the last 5 minutes of cooking increase the heat to medium-high and add a 1/3 cup of dry white wine to the sauerkraut. Continue to cook until the alcohol evaporates (approx 5 minutes).

Guten Appetit!
