Reminds me of a dish my mother made when I was a kid. It was good then and now. My grand kids like this, too. I made a couple of changes to suit my family's tastes. Used less ginger and less apricot preserves in the sauce. Also, I sauteed the sausage first and used the leftover grease from it in the skillet to cook the vegetables, as I find most smoked sausage is rather greasy. I drained the sausage on paper towels before adding it back in to the vegetables and sauce.

Was not our cup of tea, sorry. Although I do like to try new dishes. Thanks for posting.

Great recipe! One of my husband's new favorite dinners. I didn't use the crisco or tomatoes, but followed everything else and loved it! Tastes great over white rice. This one goes in my book! Thanks!

Made it this evening and the family loved it. I have a larger family so I doubled the recipe & used extra virgin olive oil instead of crisco but other than that I followed the ingredients exactly. I disagree about the prep time & cook time but I guess if you like your veggies more al dente' it would work. The flavor combination is a bit sweet so I think I will back off on the preserves to 3/4 of the recommended next time but other than that a good recipe.

Sauteed the vegetables and sausage in a little extra virgin olive oil. Used fresh grated ginger and homemade blackberry jam instead of apricot jam. I'm sure apricot jam would taste good too but I wanted to use what I had on hand. The dish could have used a touch more vinegar to cut through the sweetness, but all in all it was a great dish. Served over rice.

I made this for a pitch in. Everyone liked it. I used peach jelly because I already had some. The rest was exactly to recipe. Yum!

This meal was delicious. I substituted orange marmalade for the apricot preserves, and I liked that flavor.
