BHG Comments: Some good crusty bread and a selection of your favorite mustards are perfect serve-alongs for this robust, German-Style meal.
Amy's Comments: This was the German part of our New Year's Day meal. YUM! I used healthy choice kielbasa which lowered the points some. I normally am not a fan, but the sausage was SO mild and flavorful after a day in the crockpot! Will DEFINITELY make this again!!


1 20-ounce package refrigerated diced potatoes w/onion (ie: Simply Potatoes)
1 cup chopped green sweet pepper
1 cup chopped carrot
1 1/2 pounds cooked smoked Polish sausage, cut into 2" pieces
2/3 cup apple juice or apple cider
1 Tbsp cider vinegar
1/2 tsp caraway seeds
1/4 tsp salt
