Ingredients

For bratwursts

  • 8 pork bratwursts (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 bottle (12 oz) hard cider (or apple juice for a nonalcoholic option)
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

For relish

  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 sweet-tart apples (such as Granny Smith or Braeburn; or a combination), cored and diced
  • 1 Goldies&trade yellow onion, diced
  • 1 bag (5 oz) dried cherries
  • 1 tsp whole caraway seed
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch mixed with 2 Tbsp cold water
  • Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh mint or parsley

For serving

  • 8 pretzel sausage buns, split
  • Honey mustard

Directions

1. In 8-quart slow cooker, arrange bratwurst in single layer on bottom. Pour cider and broth over brats, cover and braise on LOW 5 to 6 hours or on HIGH 3 to 4 hours or until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F. (Brats may be braised up to one day ahead. Store in braising liquid in refrigerator. Warm brats on grill or in braising liquid before serving.)

2. For relish, in large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add apple, onion, cherries and caraway seed. Sauté just until onions are soft, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Add vinegar and sugar; simmer 3 minutes. Whisk in some cornstarch mixture to thicken slightly (you may not use it all). Season with salt and pepper.

3. Remove from heat and stir in mint. (Relish may be made up to one day ahead and chilled. Bring to room temperature before serving.)

4. To serve, place brats in pretzel buns and top with honey mustard and apple relish.

Optional:

To give brats more color after braising, grill or brown in oil in skillet before serving.

I'll be going to BI-LO asap! My mouth is watering just looking at the picture!!! I don't have to taste it to know it's delicious. I will have to look for an all beef sausage though. We don't eat pork.

Why Goldies?

Goldies are a breakthrough — a premium yellow onion unlike any other. They're full of everything you love about onions, minus everything you don't!

  • All the fresh, crisp taste
  • All the mildly sweet flavor
  • All kinds of ways to enjoy — raw or cooked
  • All the nutrition — packed with antioxidants and vitamins
  • Non-GMO
Slicing Onions
  • No tears when cutting and chopping
  • No onion breath
  • No bite or burn like other onions
  • No smelly fingers

I would totally buy these. Not dreading the strong tears would even be worth paying a little more.
