Sauerkraut from a can, pale and puckery, is no match for this a flavorful cabbage saute that goes well with savory chicken sausage. Serve this simple supper with assorted mustards and some toasted rye bread.


  • One 12-ounce package chicken sausage
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced
  • One 10-ounce package shredded cabbage, preferably finely shredded
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds


Cook the sausages in a large skillet over medium-high heat until brown on all sides, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Heat the oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and apple and cook, stirring constantly, until beginning to brown, 1-2 minutes. Add the cabbage, vinegar and salt and cook, stirring often, until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Add the cider and caraway seeds; bring to a boil. Return the sausages to the pan, cover, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the sausages are heated through and cabbage is tender, about 10 minutes.
