Cranberry sage sausages!!!!!

After I didn't get the chorizo texture right, I was determined to try again. This time I decided to try the cherry sage sausages, I used white beans and almost followed the recipe correctly. I only used half the amount of liquid smoke because 1 teaspoon seemed to be a little high, and only half the amount of garlic and sage. Isa specifically asks that you NOT use sage powder, but I used it anyway since I couldn't find dried rubbing sage in the supermarket. I also used cranberries instead of dried cherries. Texture wise these were awesome, but taste wise the chorizo were definitely tastier. Here they are precooked:

And after we fried them in a tiny bit more liquid smoke:

I will be experimenting with this a bit more.

ooh, where did you get liquid smoke??
I had some rockin' smoky baba ganoush onthe weekend and want to recreate.

They really are tasty, thanks!

Miss T, I got it from David Jones food hall in the city but you can also get it from Leos. Although I thought babaganoush normally gets its smokiness from roasting the eggplant.
