    3      pounds        Sauerkraut
    2      slices        Bacon
    2                    Onions, chopped
    4                    Pork chops
    2                    Apples
    2                    Garlic cloves, crushed
    8                    Peppercorns
    1      cup           Wine, white
    2      pounds        Sausage
 
 For sausage, use mild Italian sausages, bratwurst, or kielbasa.
 Dice bacon.  Place sauerkraut in strainer.  Rinse under cold water.  Drain 
 well.  Using a large frying pan, saute bacon with onions and chops until 
 meat is browned.
 Peel and dice apples.  Place sauerkraut and apples in crockpot. Arrange 
 chops and onions on top.  Add garlic, peppercorns, and wine.  Cover.  Cook 
 on low (200) 4-6 hours.
 Add sausages.  Cook 1 hour longer.
 Sylvia’s comments: I only used 1/2 the sauerkraut (didn't look at the can 
 size) and wish I'd had enough.  I didn't drain it, and the canning liquid 
 gave a lovely taste to the dish.  I didn't precook anything, just layered 
 it in the crockpot, turned it on in the morning before leaving for work, 
 served it over quickly-cooked noodles when we got home that night. 
 Thoroughly satisfactory.  I think when I made a similar recipe years ago, 
 it included a little brown sugar, and I'll add some next time.  But it was 
 delicious as printed.  And they were GENEROUS servings!
