  • tbsp Essential Olive Oil
  • 500g parsnips, peeled and halved (quartered if large)
  • 3 red onions, quartered
  • 2 fennel bulbs, trimmed and cut into wedges, fronds reserved
  • 2 x 400g British pork sausages with Bramley apple
  • ½ chicken stock cube
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard, plus extra to serve
  • 200g pack Blackberries, some halved
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar


  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC, gas mark 7, and put a large roasting tin in to heat up. When the oven is hot, add the oil, parsnips, onions, fennel wedges and sausages to the tin. Season, stir to coat, then roast for 30 minutes.

  2. Dissolve the stock cube in 200ml just-boiled water. Turn over everything in the tin, then pour in the hot stock. Return to the oven, reduce the heat to 200ºC, gas mark 6, and cook for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the honey and mustard together in a small bowl.

  3. Using a pastry brush, glaze the sausages with the honey-mustard mixture, turning to coat completely. Scatter in the blackberries and roast for 5-7 minutes more until the sausages are cooked through with no pink meat and the blackberries start to burst.

  4. Sprinkle over the vinegar and reserved fennel fronds, then serve with extra spoonfuls of mustard on the side, if liked.
