|Applesauce||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Caraway seeds||1 Teaspoon|
|Diced onion||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Garlic||1 Clove (5 gm)|
|Juniper berries||1 Tablespoon|
|Riesling wine||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
Heat slow cooker or Crock Pot on high.
Place the sauerkraut, applesauce, caraway seeds, and bay leaf into the cooker.
Saute bacon in a pre heated pan for one minute. Add diced onion and cook for two more minutes. Then add the garlic and crushed juniper berries and cook for two more minutes.
Add the Riesling wine and let that cook down for a minute or two. While the wine is cooking, scrape the bottom of your pan with a wooden spoon.
Pour this mixture into your cooker and cook on high for at least one and a half hours.
This will make enough sauerkraut to cover 6 to 8 bratwurst sandwiches.
