Place sausage in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for 1 hour (45 minutes if you also brown in the oven).
Some people like to brown their cooked sausage in a 350-degree oven for about 20 minutes, turning frequently.
You sister are causing me great delight! I"ll share my dear departed MIL's recipe, (also, ex though she did not live to see that finality). She was a proud 100% polish immigrant. She taught me to put the kielbasi in a pot and simmer just a bit till the natural fat lightly browns the meat. Add saurkraut (drained and washed), about two tablespoons of sugar, plenty of pepper, and salt (though I skip the salt now, cause the saurkraut and kielbasi have enough), and about 2 tablespoons of butter. Cover and simmer till saurkraut is soft. Serve with mashed potatoes, and greens beans. The only other complement I ever saw her serve it with was pierogies, when she didn't have potatoes. Of course, they were stuffed with saurkraut or potatoe. Still a favorite of my grown children, and one of the few things they cook. They always, like me, remember Babci when they do.
My mom used to make cabbage and kielbasa in a skillet. If I remember correctly, she cooked the cabbage (covered) with a bit of oil in the pan until it was soft, salted and peppered it, and then put in the kielbasa to heat it with the cabbage (again, covered). I imagine you could put in onion as well if you like, or peppers or any other veggies you might want. She just made it with cabbage and kielbasa.

Candlelight----I meant after I purchased it. I am not a good enough cook to attempt to make it myself!
