Another weird flavour combination, but something about this appealed to me. Also, a cheap and tasty source of meat, we eat sausages a LOT, so it’s always nice to stumble upon a recipe you haven’t tasted before.
And you know, it really works. The sweetness and slight acidity of the grapes, along with the vinegar, cuts through the richness of the sausage perfectly. But we know pork and apple goes together, so I dont know why I was so surprised! If you fancy trying something new, this one is easy to make and delicious!
Recipe from BBC Good Food.
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 450g pack good-quality pork sausages

- Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan set over a medium heat, tip in the sausages, then cook for 10 mins, turning every so often. Stir in the onions, then leave to cook for 5 mins more until the sausages are browned and the onions softened.
- Tip in the garlic, fennel seeds and grapes and cook for 5 more mins, stirring often, until the grapes are starting to soften. Pour over the vinegar and swirl around the pan.
