Slow Cooker Sauerkraut and Sausage

It seems like people either love sauerkraut or hate it.  And those that love it just don't get to enjoy it often enough, because this recipe is a hit whenever I make it.  It is one of my favorite slow cooker meals to fix.  It reminds me of Oktoberfest in Hermann, Missouri. This is a great recipe for tailgating and summer grilling too.  We grill hot dogs or brats outside, and I prepare the sauerkraut in the slow cooker, omitting the Polish sausage.   I  wanted to do some shopping this afternoon so I put the sauerkraut on at noon, added the sausage at four and dinner was on the table by six.  It's that easy.  One pot to clean up!
