    Reduce heat to medium. Sauté onion and apple until slightly softened, about 2 min. Turn sausages occasionally. Add cabbage and 1/2 cup water. Pan will be full.

Wine Pairings

Gewürztraminer comes into its own when served with a bold dish like sausages. The sweet and savoury components of the cabbage integrate well with the fruity intensity and acidity of this Alsatian wine. Our pick: Domaine Pierre Sparr Gewürztraminer, France, $16.
