I’m not a lover of grapes, much to my mother’s disappointment, but I do love sausages! It’s a delicious combination that is often used in cooking, but why not combine it in a delicious, healthy recipe.
The supermarket is a hazardous place for anyone trying to lose weight. The foods lined up on those shelves contain high amounts of sugar and fat that will make you feel like you are getting fuller faster. But that is not the only reason you should avoid grocery shopping. The foods they sell us are not only high in calories and fat, but they also contain preservatives which are not good for our health.
“Just tell me which fruit and which sausage!” Is the question I’m asked most often, as this is the ONLY type of question that I know how to answer. Don’t get me wrong, I love sausages, particularly ones with fruit in them (no pun intended). I’m not a vegetarian or anything, but I don’t eat them every day. In fact, I’m a little biased towards sausages that have fruit in them. I’ll even go so far as to say that I’m a little biased towards sausages without fruit in them.
I am totally in love with this dish. Who would have thought that the flavours of sausage, grapes and cherries could go together?
Over the sausage with grapes and cherries
I got this recipe from Ina Garten.
No, it’s not one of his recipes, it actually comes from a friend who has a restaurant in New York.
This recipe, well… without the cherries, has been on the menu for years.
It’s an old favorite and everyone always asks about it.
Ina invited her on her show to cook it for her audience.
I was totally intrigued. It’s such a strange combination of flavors that I thought I should recreate it.
It turns out that this is a very old recipe that I believe originated to celebrate the harvest in Italy.
That makes sense.
They used what they had, namely grapes, Marsala wine, and of course Italy, known for its sausages.
So a clever cook decided to cook them all together.
And the result is pure magic.
I changed it a bit to make it a little healthier.
I substituted the spicy chicken sausage for pork sausage.
And since I love cherries, I thought they would be a tasty and interesting addition.
The cherries provide extra sweetness. Not much, but enough.
And the beauty of this recipe is that it’s very simple.

How to make sausages with grapes and cherries
And it’s very easy to do. Put the grapes and cherries in a pan over medium heat.
Add 2 tablespoons of oil and stir in the grapes and cherries until the fruit is well coated.
Then add the Marsala wine and finally place the Andouille sausage under the fruit and place the dish in the oven preheated to 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
Turn the sausages over so they brown evenly and bake for another 10 minutes.
And then get ready for the best sausage you’ve ever had in your life!
It’s the perfect date night.
The grape and cherry sausages are also worth a try.
Your guests won’t believe how easy it is, and they’ll want to know how.
