Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon butter substitute, such as Brummel & Brown spread
  • 1 onion, halved and sliced thinly
  • 2 apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 Cup red-wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon yellow mustard seed
  • Tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 2 Pounds finely shredded sauerkraut
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

Melt the spread in a small skillet. Add the onion and apples and sauté until the onion is translucent.

Whisk together the vinegar, mustard seed, and sugar in the bottom of a 4-quart slow cooker until the sugar dissolves. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir to evenly distribute. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours. Serve hot.

Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
