I've had this post in my drafts for weeks and just haven't had the time to clean it up. It's a lovely dish for you, my fellow no-longer-fond-of-fowl-for-at-least-a-few-months-say-February friends. Braised sausages with apple, onion and hard cider sauce. You can find the full recipe here. Oh yeah mama! Sounds amazing, am I right? Thank you very much Rachel Ray to whom I'm forever indebted for this recipe.
First you simmer the brats in a little bit of oil and water. The following photo looks delicious! And by delicious, I mean disgusting. (Two D words, easily confused and mistyped).
So just turn away, stifle the gag, and chop up some apples for pete's sake. And some onions.
Add the apples, onions and some salt and pepper right on top of that flavorful muck of questionable ickiness.
