Perfect Comfort Food! Sausage & Red Wine Stew

I made this after the market yesterday evening. After a gorgeous Autumn afternoon at the market I was really in the mood for bowl of sheer comfort! I think this Sausage & Red Wine Stew captures the feel of this time of year perfectly.

This stew can be prepared a day in advance and then reheated thoroughly.Infact, the flavour is enhanced if you’re organised enough to do this!

It’s also worth noting that this stew is not expensive to make which is an added bonus!

serves 4, with leftovers!

16 good quality pork sausages-cut into halves
2 onions-sliced
3 carrots-sliced
a handful of fresh thyme-roughly chopped
1 large glass red wine-I had some left over red which was fine for this
3 tins chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp red currant jelly
a little olive oil

Heat a large saucepan or casserole dish and fry the onions with olive oil, on a low heat for 5 mins. Once soft, add the sausages and cook on a medium heat until brown. Stir in the carrots and herbs and cook for a further 5 mins.
Add the red wine and cook on high heat until the red wine has reduced by half.
Pour in the tomatoes and simmer on low heat for a min. of 40 mins. Add your red currant jelly and check for seasoning.

Serve with mashed potatoes.
