Pairing fresh, juicy fruit with bold gourmet sausage is an unexpected and delicious combination. You can even add a side of curried walnut couscous for greater textural complexity. Fantastically sweet and savory, grilled sausage with fruit relish and curried walnut couscous is a recipe that works well for everything from a summer cookout to a winter treat that transports you to the tropics.


Preparing your Fruit Relish

Start making your sweet relish by chopping up some fruit. For a delicious treat, pick dried mangoes, apricots, and sun plums from our Dried Fruit Collection. If you prefer fresh fruits, choose juicy Crown Comice pears, Fuji apples and Mandarin oranges. Remove the seeds and stems before dicing into small pieces, then place your fruit in a bowl. Finish your relish with a splash of white balsamic vinegar and a sprinkle of kosher salt.


Cooking the Sausage

Make your sausage super tender by boiling your meat before grilling. Simply cut thick slabs of our Summer Sausage and add to a boiling pot of apple juice and water. Boil for five minutes before placing the sausage on the grill until a nice char forms. When perfectly cooked, place your sausage on a bun and top everything with your homemade relish.

Making your Side Dish

The slight spiciness of curry paired with the natural sweetness of raisins is the perfect complement to a sausage sandwich. Make a delicious sauce by combining walnuts, butter, brown sugar, curry and our Berry Nut Bounty Mix in a saucepan. Stir often to keep the butter from browning. Finish by adding water and bringing it to a boil before adding the couscous. Cover and let the couscous sit in your pan for five minutes, then fluff with a fork and enjoy!

 

Gourmet sausage, juicy fruit and delicious couscous prepared with Hickory Farms ingredients is the perfect sweet and savory meal. Start with our Fruitful Gift Tower for nearly everything you need to prepare this unique meal that will be sure to become a family favorite.

You can quickly spread these delicious flavors on some toast, biscuits or a bagel for your busy family members to enjoy as they head out for the day.

Keep it Light

You can’t go wrong with fruit and cheese. Apple slices go particularly well with sharp cheddar. Toss in some walnuts for protein and you’ll have a well-balanced meal. Hickory Farms stocks a full selection of fruits, cheeses and nuts in gourmet gift boxes at varying prices.

Make your own granola using our Dried Fruit Collection, with its assortment of white and yellow peaches, plums, mangoes, almonds and other fruits. Fill a small container or baggie to snack on when your energy flags during the afternoon slump.

You can also make nutritious breakfast smoothies with any combination of fruit, fat-free plain yogurt, a dash of skim or soy milk, honey and ice. Just puree in a blender for a delicious option when time is at a premium, but you need a healthy start to your morning.
