Brown the sausage links in a skillet, pour off the grease. Core and section the apples (no need to peel them). Open the cans of sauerkraut and squeeze out the juice. Place apples, sauerkraut, then sausage in a crock pot electric cooker. Sprinkle brown sugar on top and top with a dash of cloves. Cook on low for six hours.
This is a variant on a German standard. The sausage links give it a Texas twist. I like to serve it to friends when the weather is chilly. Because the apple juice and sugar take the acidic edge off the sauerkraut. This dish has turned a few of my friends into "kraut lovers". It's great with beer and rye bread too.
