Sausage Rolls are a classic recipe that never goes out of fashion.  They are superb as a snack, a light lunch and especially ideal for picnics.  The normal recipe is good but when you add apple brandy and pistachio nuts you take this up another level.  Flambéing the Calvados burns off the alcohol but leaves a perfect perfume.  The pork mince and pork sausage meat is mixed with the sage leaves and dried apricots. This mix creates a flavour explosion that will become a standard to beat. I serve these with chutneys such as Tomato Relish and Katjang Sauce (Spicy Peanut Sauce).

Sausage rolls at tea time is a personal favourite and often a snack on the go. The apple brandy and nuts add an amazing texture but still smooth and silky.
