Show me a bored housewife who says she doesn't like to spend an afternoon playing with balls, and I'll show you a liar... Another tick on the festive 'to do' list and sausagemeat under my fingernails. Whoop whoop!

Uncooked cranberry apple sausagemeat balls
Soon to be frozen balls

Cranberry apple sausagemeat balls

Gather together:

A 450g packet of sausagemeat
An onion
A couple of cloves of garlic, crushed
75g dried cranberries
An apple, grated
A few sprigs of fresh parsley, chopped

Chop the onion finely and fry it in a knob of butter until soft. Add the crushed garlic and cook for another minute. Set aside. Meanwhile, combine all the other ingredients in a bowl and add the onion/garlic when cool. Season, then squish everything together and shape into balls of your favourite size. Put them on a baking tray covered with clingfilm in the freezer. When they have frozen solid you can prise them off the tray and bag them up. Remember to defrost them in plenty of time, and bake them in a hot oven (about 200/gas 6) for about 30 minutes.
