STEP 3
Stir in the Sauerkraut (4 pound),Fuji Apple (2), and Dry White Wine (1 cup). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for about 1 hour or until sauerkraut is very tender, stirring occasionally.
STEP 4
Stir in the Dark Brown Sugar (4 tablespoon), Kosher Salt (1/2 teaspoon), and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/2 teaspoon). Add the reserved bacon bits and gently mix until well incorporated. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with the Sautéed Apples and Fresh Dill (1 tablespoon). Best when served warm.
