1 Hartington Sausages With Colcannon

Boil a kettle

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Cut the potatoes (skin on) into large bite-size pieces

Slice the spring onion[s] finely, discarding the root ends

2 Hartington Sausages With Colcannon

Add the potatoes to a pot of salted boiling water over a high heat and cook for 15-20 min or until fork tender 

3 Hartington Sausages With Colcannon

Add the sausages to a baking tray (use tin foil to avoid mess!) and place in the oven for 20 min or until cooked through and nicely browned

Meanwhile, separate the spring greens leaves, discarding any tough stalks 

Layer the leaves over each other then roll them up and slice them into thin strips 

4 Hartington Sausages With Colcannon

Heat a large wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid) with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil over a high heat

Once hot, add the spring greens, spring onion and a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Cook for 4-5 min, then add a splash of water, cover and cook for a further 2 min

5 Hartington Sausages With Colcannon

Drain the cooked potatoes and return them to the pan

Add the spring greens (reserve the pan for the next step), a large knob of butter, a splash of milk and a pinch of salt and pepper

Mash thoroughly until smooth - this is your colcannon

6 Hartington Sausages With Colcannon

Meanwhile, finely dice (or grate) the apples (skin on), discarding the cores

Chop the chives finely

Return the reserved pan to a low heat with a small knob of butter and add the apples and chives

Cover and cook for 4-5 min or until the apples are soft 

7 Hartington Sausages With Colcannon

Once softened, add a pinch of sugar and a very small splash of water to the apples
