Sweet and Sour Sausage was first served to me with pancakes at a breakfast given by our minister’s wife. She promised to give out the recipe. Unfortunately, I never received it from her.

But it was a culinary memory I was determined to repeat. Eventually, I came up with the following recipe which tastes just as good as hers–at least the way I remember.


If you have the time and want to make people feel special, try making a delicious little k-bob. First, make sure everything is coated with the sauce. Second, use a toothpick and poke a piece of sausage, then a piece of pineapple, and finally, another piece of sausage that is a different type from the one you already have on the toothpick.  Simple, eh?
