I had made something similar to this, sometime ago. But this time, I only had strawberries in the fridge and not grapes. I thought it would be fun to try it out. After all, pork and fruits always make a good combo.
Well, what do you know? It was outstanding! Honestly, I still prefer the grapes but this wasn’t half bad, at all! It was fabulous with pasta. I also tried it with polenta. And now, all I have to say is… what are you waiting for? Get cookin’!
2 Raw Italian Sausage Links (Brats would work, as well)
6-8 medium-sized Strawberries, quartered
2 Tbs. EVOO
2 Tbs. Aged Balsamic Vinegar, the good kind
1 Tbs. Honey
A handful of Walnut pieces
2 Tbs. Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste
Cook sausages your way. Meanwhile, in a medium-low heated saucepan, add the olive oil and cook the strawberries for about 10 minutes or until they’re almost in a jam-like consistency. Stir in the balsamic vinegar, honey, salt & pepper for another couple of minutes. Turn off heat and mix in the parsley and walnuts.
Plate the sausages, top with the sauce. Serve with pasta.
