An Alternative Way to Cook with Apples
Who doesn’t love a nice crisp apple? This power food is not only healthy, filling, and delicious, it is also the perfect ingredient to use in a number of fantastic recipes. We have all heard the classics; apple pie, apple cobbler, and apple fritters are the common ways we think to use apples. However, the many flavours can be used in much more than simply baked goods. Check out this recipe for Seared Sausage with Cabbage and Pink Lady Apples, an alternative way to use the sweet flavour of an apple.
1 tbsp. olive oil
6 small sweet Italian sausage links (about 1 1/2 pounds total)
2 Pink Lady apples, halved
1/2 red onion, sliced
1/2 head red cabbage, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
freshly ground black pepper
1 c. fresh apple cider
2 tbsp. fresh cider vinegar
- Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a plate.
- Reduce heat to medium and add apples, cut-sides down. Scatter onion and cabbage around apples. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring onion occasionally, until apples are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
- Flip apples. Return sausage to skillet, nestling among vegetables. Add cider and vinegar. Simmer, rotating and turning sausages occasionally, until sausages are cooked through and apples are tender, 18 to 20 minutes.
