Bangers & Mash (Sweet Lamb Sausages)

As you may know I am an active sausage fan and make my own, of course. This recipe is everyone's favourite. The combination of the dried fruit, juice and cider vinegar makes for a sweet and juicy sausage. Being lamb it's possible to cook them with an incy bit of pink in the middle, which will retain the juiciness. Ideally you will fry them on low to medium turning frequently until both sides are browned nicely for about 5 minutes each side.

The mash I guarantee will taste so much like potato mash that no one will know the difference, except they won't end up with a belly full of starch.
