I found some Chicken Apple Sausage in the freezer, and I decided to give this recipe a try. I like all the ingredients, but I didn't like them together. The sausage tasted fine, and the cabbag...

Tried this tonight for supper. Unfortunately I found it waaaaaay too acidic and I only used 2 cups vinegar & 1 cup juice. I even used a sweet onion and yes I caramelized the heck out of them. Ev...

Yummy. Dont cook the cabage too long. I use fresh apples and chicken broth in place of the apple cider and regular smoked sausage
