Sausage and Italian Prune Plums Braised in Wine with Polenta


This is such an easy dish to make and includes one of our favorite fruits - Italian prune plums. Requiring few ingredients and little time, you will love this when plums are in season in late August and September. Serve with polenta and a baguette to sop up the sauce. Pass a simple tossed arugula salad at the table.

What you will need

1 pound ripe Italian prune plums

3 pounds sweet Italian sausage (with or without fennel seeds)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 large shallot, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh sage

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Pinch of sugar, if needed

2/3 cup good, light, fruity dry wine such as Beaujolais or Pinot Noir
