Make these herby sausages with red cabbage and mash when you are in need of some comfort food, they are sure to hit the spot!

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Heat the oil in a large, flameproof casserole dish over a high heat and add the sausages. Fry for 5 minutes, turning regularly to lightly brown the sausages all over. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  2. Melt 50g (2fl oz) butter in the casserole dish then add the cabbage, vinegar, redcurrant jelly and wine and cook for 5 minutes to soften. Return the sausages to the dish, season, and roast for 40 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, put the potatoes in a pan of cold water and bring to the boil. Simmer until tender. Drain well and mash with the milk and the remaining 25g (1oz) butter.
  4. Divide the mash between four plates and top with the sausages and cabbage. Scatter over the chopped parsley and drizzle with the braising juices to serve.
