Measure Ingredient
3.00 Bottles Good; heavy ale
2.00 Bay leaves
6.00 Whole cloves
1.00 tablespoon Brown sugar
Salt; to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper; to taste
2.00 pounds Fresh bockwurst or other white sausage

Add ale, bay leaf, cloves, sugar, salt and pepper to a saucepan and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Add bockwurst and simmer slowly, covered, for 4 to 5 minutes or until warmed through and plump. Drain sauerkraut and rinse, if it is too strong. Add to a non-reactive saucepan along with apple juice, caraway seeds and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer slowly, partially covered, for 20 to 30 minutes or until most of the juices are absorbed. To serve, mound sauerkraut on warm plates and top with steamed bockwurst and a big dollop of homemade Honey Beer Mustard. This recipe yields 6 servings.
