"A New Year's family tradition. We eat it on New Year's to help us remember to temper the bitter with the sweet in the coming year! It is also kid-friendly; haven't met a kid yet that don't like it! If your kid hates sauerkraut, try this. Quick and easy to make but does have a longer cooking time to reduce the liquids and bring out the sweetness. You can use it as a meal or a side dish and some family members, believe it or not, get a bowlful for a late night snack!"

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Empty sauerkraut and turnip greens into a colander and rinse lightly; drain. Spread sauerkraut, turnip greens, and onions in an even layer in a large baking dish and season with salt and black pepper.
- Whisk apple juice concentrate, water, and brown sugar in a bowl, dissolving the sugar. Pour juice mixture over vegetables. Arrange pieces of kielbasa sausage into dish atop vegetables.
- Bake in the preheated oven until most of the liquid has evaporated and the kielbasa is browned, about 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- Get the darker-colored apple juice. I have used grape, cran-apple, cran-grape, cran-blueberry, and pineapple juice in a pinch if outta my favorite apple juice, but apple tastes best!
