I posted this old recipe from the 1960's for Crock Pot Sauerkraut and Sausage.This recipe is awesome, easy to make, and it turns out like no other dish I had tasted before. There were so many different flavors to enjoy. When you eat, the sausage and the other ingredients, added that aren't normally added made this dish one of a kind. I gave some servings to some of my neighbors and they all are adamant about getting the recipe from me and they've been trying to figure out the secret ingredients!
