One could not get more Australian than Sausages, although our cuisine is fast changing with all the multicultural influences in our country today. The Greeks and Italians, and Chinese were the first waves of immigration to change our staple diet of bangers mash or meat and three veges.... but now there are other elements taking hold. Lebanese, Middle eastern, Thai, and Indian are making big inroads into traditional Australian food lines. There is even an Indian supermarket chain having success in the suburbs of Australia.
A friend asked me for a recipe for something different to do with Sausages and I came up with this one. It is something from my mother's generation but fits well with the multicultural image that Australia purports to have, I think. Do you agree? Something for you to ponder about....
1 kg sausages
2 tables vinegar
1 tsp salt
1 small apple
1 tablespoon curry powder
60 g butter
2 ½ cups water
1 beef stock cube
Salt and pepper
