Apples Brats and Onions for an Autumn Meal

Fresh apples and onions are hitting the stores and farmer’s markets.  Autumn is finally here, and with it, beautiful produce.  I love fresh brats in the summer, but in the fall, they are fantastic in so many ways.  A while ago, I started simmering my brats with apples and onions, taking them from my backyard cookout to a fall favorite.  Now my family can’t wait for the first apples of the season to come in so I’ll make Apples Brats and Onions.  They really know that fall is here when they come home to the scent of their favorite meal wafting through the house.
