At the barbecue, this was everyone's favorite dish; my sister created it, and everyone wanted to know the secret ingredient.

What You Need:

Half an inch slices of kielbasa sausage, 1 pound

Chop, peel, and core two big apples.

a half cup of brown sugar

Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoons

30 milliliters of apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder

25% of a teaspoon of nutmeg, ground

finely chopped 1/2 cup of onion

What to do

First, in a slow cooker, add the kielbasa slices.

2. Combine the apple chunks, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, cider vinegar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a basin.

3. Once the kielbasa is in the slow cooker, pour the apple sauce over it.

4. Top the apple and kielbasa mixture with the chopped onion.

Put the lid on and reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring regularly, for four to six hours, or until apples are soft and kielbasa is coated.

6. If wanted, serve warm with a sprinkling of fresh parsley as a garnish.

Tips and Variations

These bites may be made even spicier by adding a sprinkle of red pepper flakes or smoky paprika to the mix. If you're feeding fussy eaters, you may want to tone down the vinegar and mustard a little. In the last hour of simmering, add a handful of dried cranberries or raisins for an even fruitier touch.
