4 bratwurst or any of your favourite sausages
2 packs sauerkraut (zuurkool), about 800 gr
250 g lardons
50 g butter
1 bottle beer
2 bay leaves
6 juniper berries
boiled potatoes, to serve
4 confit duck legs, to serve
mustard, to serve
Finely slice the onions. Peel the apples, discard the core and cut into 1 cm cubes. Place the sauerkraut in a sieve and rinse under cold running water. Dry the sauerkraut well. Heat a wok with 2 tablespoons olive oil and stir fry the sauerkraut until lightly caramelised. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Heat a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and 50 g butter with the onion and lardons. Fry for 5 minutes. Add the stir fried sauerkraut, apple, the bottle of beer, juniper and bay leaves and cook gently over a low heat, covered with a lid, for about 40 minutes.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to the pan and fry the sausages for about 12 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
Season the sauerkraut with salt and pepper. Serve with the sausages and confit duck, boiled potatoes and a little mustard, if you wish.
