Preparation: Microwave sauerkraut: combine sauerkraut, bacon, broth, juniper berries and bay leaves in microwave-safe bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Microwave on high until sauerkraut softens, about 10 minutes.
Brown bratwurst: Meanwhile, melt butter in 12-ich skillet over medium heat until melted and foaming subsides. Brown bratwurst lightly on all sides, about 3 minutes total. Transfer to plate and set aside.
Saut onion and sauerkraut: Add onion and teaspoon salt to skillet, and return to medium heat until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in sauerkraut mixture, apple and brown sugar, and bring to simmer
Cook bratwurst: Nestle bratwurst into sauerkraut, cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until sausages are no longer pink in center, 10 to 12 minutes.
Presentation: Discard bay leaves and bacon, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
Juniper berries can be found in the spice section of the supermarket. Although sauerkraut comes packed in cans and jars, we found sauerkraut packaged in plastic bags ( which are found in the refrigerated section ) to be superior in flavor and texture.
