I liked the cabbage part; I think I just don't care for the sausage.

I LOVE this recipe; cannot stop making it. I subbed water for the apple juice, chicken apple sausage for the turkey, and added carroway seeds instead of thyme. And, for a perfect finish, I put a dallop of goat cheese on the top of each serving. So delicious!

I love this recipe, and it's very flexible. I made it tonight as a side dish along with a chicken sausage and some roasted potatoes. We had some apple cider left from a holiday party, and that added a wonderful rich flavor in place of the usual apple juice. I use only 1 TB of sugar and add 1 TB apple cider vinegar in addition to the 2 TBs of red wine vinegar; I also like to add whole peppercorns, make it ahead of time, and let the flavors meld before reheating for dinner.

This was amazing! I added some caraway seed to make it more authentic. I used smoked beef brats because that's what we had here from another meal. This made a hearty main dish meal. My boyfriend was in love with this. Served with some fresh homemade bread. Will become a staple at our home!

This is in regular rotation in our home. Highly recommended.

Amazing and so easy! I followed the recipe exactly except I realized after I only did a cup of chopped apple instead of 1.5 cups, but that didn't matter at all. It was so delicious. My boyfriend ended up coming home from work hours after I made it, and I kept it on simmer the whole time...his really cooked down, was sooooooooo braised and delicious when he finally got home and ate it. He LOVED it! Such a healthy and complete meal.

I didn't have turkey sausage so used smoked turkey sausage, Hillshire Farms, cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Possibly why it wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be. Also needed to add chicken base to the liquid and caraway seeds improved the flavor; used white zinfadel wine to replace the apple juice. Served over noodles.

One of the best cabbage dishes I've ever had - wonderful salty flavor from the sausage balanced with sweet flavor from the apples. An almost cinnamon-like hint to the cooking liquid, even though no cinnamon is added. Served with sourdough bread - a great meal.

I was worried but this was AMAZING...... I used hot turkey sausage and it turned out perfect. I will make it again. I don't know that it was enough for dinner but made a GREAT lunch with crackers, kids even liked it.
