You guys, it’s apple season! Can you feel the slight chill in the air and the warm scent of cinnamon that is just about everywhere? Yeah, me either but I’m hopeful that it will happen soon. Even though it’s September, today in Illinois where I live the temperatures are supposed to be in the 90’s with a heat index in the 100’s. UGH! Oh well.

My husband’s least favorite vegetable are peas, so it was my quest to make a split pea soup that even he would enjoy. Personal challenge accepted. Game on!

Although I’ve never been to Germany, it’s on my bucket list of places I dream of going.
However, with recipes like this, I like to imagine myself already there. German Pork Ribs with Sauerkraut for the slow cooker.
I first made this dish in the fall and on the stove-top in a large Dutch oven. Since I have the taste for it again, but I don’t want to heat up the kitchen, let me show you how you can make this dish three ways. In the slow-cooker, outside on the grill, and inside in a Dutch oven.
