This recipe is borrowed from the Farmers Against Hunger cookbook. These are cooked as seperate components, but really taste great together. You can use any type of sausage you like here, and it's even better served with boiled or mashed potatoes!
  • Olive oil
  • 1½ lb sausages (bratwurst, kielbasa, Italian etc.)
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, halved and cut into wedges
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 7 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 head of cabbage, quartered, cored and leaves torn into large pieces
  • 2 tbsp chopped flat parsley
  • ½ bunch fresh chives, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Boil a large pot of water over high heat and add a tsp of salt to it.
  2. Add 1 tbsp of oil to a pan as the water is boiling and cook the sausage over medium heat, turning occasionally. Cook until sausage is browned all over (approx. 15 minutes). Remove from pan and to a separate plate.
  3. Add the apples to the same pan, sprinkle brown sugar and thyme over them. Add 3 tbsp butter and raise heat to medium-high. Cook until apples are slightly brown and soft (approx. 5 minutes).
  4. Add vinegar to the boiling water and then add cabbage. Cook for a few minutes until soft, but still has a slight crunch. Drain, coat with remaining butter, parsley, chives and salt and pepper.
  5. Serve all together!
