The kids looked at me like I'd gone a little bit mad this evening when I said we were having sausages with grapes for tea. Actually the sweetness of the red grapes was delicious with the sausages, sticky onions and slightly vinegary sauce. It was under the heading of comfort food on the good food website and it was certainly that.
450g pack good-quality pork sausages
2 onions, sliced
1 garlic clove, sliced
1 tsp fennel seed
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
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. Cook for a few mins more until the onions are sticky and the sausages cooked through. Serve with soft polenta or mashed potato.
