1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 bay leaf

Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp; remove from pan, drain, and crumble; set aside.

Drain off all but 2 tbsp of dripping is pan (or use butter or margarine if you prefer); add onion and garlic to drippings; cook over medium heat until tender, stirring occasionally.

Stir in sauerkraut, potatoes, 2 cups water, apple cider, brown sugar, bouillion, caraway, and bay leaf.

Bring to a boil over heat.

Meanwhile, brown bratwurst in another skillet over medium heat until browned, turning to brown all sides.

Add to sauerkraut mixture when it comes to a boil; then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.

Add apples, and cook, covered, for 5-10 minutes more or until apples are tender.

Stir in the bacon, and discard the bay leaf; serve
