Alsation-style sausages

Method

  • Wash the sauerkraut in cold water and then drain in a colander.
  • Heat the lard in a large heavy-bottomed pot and gently saute the onions and garlic until tender. Then add the bay leaves, juniper berries, coriander seeds and peppercorns. Briefly toss and then add the sauerkraut. Mix to coat well. Add the thyme, sparkling wine and 2 tbsp chopped parsley. Mix well and cover with baking paper and the lid. Turn the heat down and simmer very gently for 1 hour, adding a little stock if drying out. Then stir, bury the sausages and re-cover with baking paper and the lid. Cook for another 30 mins or so.
  • When ready, slice the sausages. Mound a bed of sauerkraut on individual plates and top with the sausages and potatoes. Sprinkle with a little parsley and serve with a dollop of mustard on the side.
