I’d love to say this Apple Sausage Stir-Fry was a huge hit here at home, but my husband didn’t actually get to have any while I was developing this recipe. By the time he got home from work, there wasn’t anything left of it. I couldn’t help myself–I was hungry and it was so good! (Plus, when I’m testing recipes, I don’t make a very large amount in case things go south.) If you haven’t had fennel before, it’s got the texture of onions but a mild, sweet flavor with the aroma of licorice. It’s a wonderful plant and a unique addition to your culinary repertoire! It pairs wonderfully aware with the tart-and-sweet flavors of apples and cherries while also complementing the rich, savory blend of herbs, spices, and ground pork that makes up the sausage in this recipe.
You can use pre-made ground sausage, crumbled sausage patties, or sliced links for this recipe. Just make sure you check the ingredients if you use store-bought sausage and need to follow the autoimmune protocol. If fresh cherries aren’t available, frozen ones work okay–just thaw and drain before use. But a sprinkle of dried cherries or cranberries makes for a great substitute, too!
