    Pork and Cranberry Sausage Rolls

    The addition of dried cranberries and a hint of orange zest gives these scrummy sausage rolls a deliciously mild sweetness, like a good pork stuffing

    • Preparation time: 25 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes 45 minutes

    Makes: 12 small rolls

    Ingredients

    • 375g ready-rolled puff pastry
    • Plain flour, for dusting
    • 450g free-range pork sausages
    • 30g dried cranberries, chopped
    • 1 orange, finely grated zest
    • 6 sage leaves, finely chopped
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 2 tsp fennel seeds

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas 7. Place the pastry on a lightly floured work surface and unroll. Roll out a little more so you have a rectangle roughly 25cm x 33cm. Divide the pastry in half lengthways, so you have 2 long pieces.
    2. Make a slit down the length of each sausage and remove their skins. Place the meat in a large mixing bowl with the cranberries, orange zest and sage and mix till well combined. Halve the mixture and, using slightly wet hands, gently form each into a long skinny sausage the same length as the pastry.
    3. Place a long sausage in the middle of one of the pastry pieces and brush one of its long edges with some of the egg. Roll into a long cylinder, making sure the pastry overlaps where it meets. Place seam-side down and use a sharp knife to cut into 6 rolls. Gently squeeze the cut ends of each to neaten them if necessary. Repeat with the other half.
    4. Transfer the rolls to a large, non-stick baking sheet. Brush with egg and sprinkle with the fennel seeds. Bake for 20 minutes or till cooked and golden brown. Allow to cool before packing.
