I keep having to find the email my Mother sent me this in (back in 2002).
Sausage & Apple braise
Cut apples into thick, even slices. Finely slice leeks & wash well. Put\ apples in boiling water, bring back to boil and blanch for 1 minute. Drain & cool quickly. Repeat with leeks.
With wetted hands, shape sausage meat into balls about size of large cherry.\ In lightly buttered 3pt ovenproof dish layer up the apple,leek and half the sausage balls with a sprinkling of instant potato and seasoning between layers. Finish with remaining sausage balls as a topping. Mix cider with herbs and pour it over the mixture. Bake at Mark 5 for about 1 hour. Serve sprinkled with chopped parsley or mint.
Emperor Says: seems to work fine with sausages. I usually use a bit more cider than that, too.
Aquarion Says: LC dislikes the leeks, so try it with 1/2 leeks and something (onions?) instead. Think on this
