2 cups chopped onion
1 clove garlic, mincedf
2 (27 oz.) cans sauerkraut, rinsed and drained well

3/4 tsp. dried thyme
1 1/4 cups dry vermouth

1. In a 4 qt. Dutch oven, over medium-high heat, fry bacon until crisp. Remove bacon to paper towels to drain; crumble and reserve. Saute onions and garlic in bacon drippings until limp. Stir in drained sauerkraut and chopped apples.
