Pork Sausages and Apple Cider

11 Aug

Pork Sausages

While we were at the Abbey Medieval Festival, we saw a pot full of a delicious smelling sausage stew. The man told me very briefly how he made it and I decided to attempt to make it myself.

[ Serves: 4 | Time: 60 Minutes | Cost: $8 ]
[ Brittanys Rating: 4 / 5 | My Rating: 3.5 / 5 ]

Ingredients

500 gm pork sausages
1 bottle apple cider
1 green apple, peeled and diced
1 onion, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon rosemary

Method

  1. Place the sausages in a pot with enough water to cover. Boil for 5 minutes until cooked.
  2. Add the onion, apple, herbs and enough cider to cover. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for about 30 minutes.
  3. Serve with hot crusty bread and a glass of cider.

Dinner is served

Observations

  • To me, this was just really sweet. I couldn’t decide if I was eating a dessert or a main. Next time I make this, I’ll use some fennel seeds or star anise to cut through the sweetness. I am really undecided whether nor not I enjoyed it, although I did eat my whole bowl full!
  • Diabetic Note: There is to be scared of here, diabetics. I didn’t have any problems at all with this meal.
  • Ethical Note: Hmm, home-made sourdough with organic pork. Win win!

    I guess you may have used a sweet cider Rhianna? They also make draught (like beer) and dry which is not sweet at all. So long as it was tasty that is all that matters :)
