I will admit that I used kielbasa instead of bratwurst, but that is what was available at my farmers market. Plus I like kielbasa better. I loved the tomato jam--it really cooked down to a thick and completely spreadable paste, and I also enjoyed the cumin in the sauerkraut. I did end up adding some grainy mustard after a couple of bites--I love mustard with sausage. The sandwich bread was not even really needed--I could have made a meal from the meat, jam, and kraut.
