It’s apple picking season, try my Slow Cooked Apple Kielbasa recipe. The perfect meal to warm you up, this Fall.
You guys, it’s almost time to go apple picking. It was always one of my favorite outdoor activities to do with my family until we moved to Florida several years ago. Living here in Florida we don’t have the pleasure to go apple picking but rest assured, we’re just as happy to see apple bushels available at our local stores. Just recently I decided to pick up a few apple bushels while they’re still available.
With several apples still left over, I decided to add some delicious Green Apples to my Slow Cooked Apple Kielbasa recipe. -And it was amazing! I’m so excited to share with you the key ingredient in this seasonal slow cooked meal.
Slow Cooked Apple Kielbasa key ingredient is Jennie-O® Hardwood Smoked Turkey Kielbasa. Can you believe it? Delicious Turkey Kielbasa that marinates unbelievable with brown sugar, crushed and chunk pieces green apples, and minced garlic. Yup, that is all you need to make it. Simple preparation allows you to kick back and let the slow cooker do all the work.
Begin by cutting your Jennie-O® Turkey Hardwood Smoked Kielbasa in 1-inch slices. You will need at least two packages (two pounds) of Jenny-O® Turkey Kielbasa. Turn your slow cooker on low.
Measure one cup of brown sugar and place it in your slow cooker. Next, take your sliced Jennie-O® Hardwood Smoked Kielbasa Turkey Kielbasa and add it in.
I used two medium-sized green apples for the recipe. Green apples have a tartness flavor which makes them a perfect ingredient to this sweet recipe.
Cut each apple into slices and toss them in a blender until the texture of the apples is crushed with chunky pieces. Add your apple mixture inside your slow cooker. Next, add one teaspoon of minced garlic. Stir, cover, and cook for 4 hours.
