Sweet and Sour Sausages

This is a great way to cook sausage for a crowd and kids love it! The recipe can be adapted to as many sausages as you need. I substituted the jam for half of the sugar because I found it too sweet and often I have a jar of jam that has been open long enough and I want to use up. You can still reduce the sugar in this recipe to suit your taste.

In the slow cooker at lunch and ready to serve for dinner. Even better if you have a rice cooker to just turn on when you get home or program to start when you want!

Pour sauce over sausages in the oven and continue to cook for 40 – 50 minutes until bubbling and thick or place sausage in slow cooker with sauce and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours .
