Fruited Spicy Sausage

LEVEL: Presto – Easy!

2 lb. ground pork  (double ground pork)
½ onion finely chopped
¼ C. dried sour cherries
¼ C. dried apricots
1 Tbsp. chopped parsley, sage and rosemary
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp finely minced garlic
½ Tbsp. salt
½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp. The Amazing Heat
1 tsp. The Amazing Rub
¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
¼ C. cold white wine
fresh sage leaves – browned in butter

Mix all ingredients to prepare Spicy/Fruited Sausage and cook small balls of the sausage mixture in skillet or bake in a 375 degree oven approx 12 minutes.  Remove from skillet and brown whole sage leaves in a little butter and sausage drippings. Serve Sausage Balls to garnish on Pumpkin Kissed Grits.  I recommend small servings in individual ramekins – excellent as a Tapas, appetizer – or entrée. You can go sweet or savory on this one – finish with salt/pepper – or add very small amount of maple syrup – delicious!
