hard cider braised kielbasa with potatoes and sauerkraut

we haven’t had my mom’s German dinner for a long time, and i had a craving for kielbasa and sauerkraut… so for you today – another fast, easy sausage for dinner recipe. this one switches the classic beer-and-sausage combination for gluten-free hard apple cider (um, yum!), resulting in a sweet-and-sour dish that’s perfect for a cool night.

i really like bavarian-style sauerkraut (it’s got the caraway seeds and seems sweeter), but you can also make your own.  this recipe from nourished kitchen looks amazing and do-able!
