Description

Not sure what to serve to your vegetarian friends? Try this vegetarian sausage, made with dried fruits and nuts, held together with sweet honey and flavored with a touch of Brandy. In a blender, chop up your almonds and figs until they create a smooth paste. Quickly add in your chopped apricots, Brandy, and honey to the mixture; then, roll and leave in a cool place. Slice thinly and place your sausage on some crackers for a fresh tasting appetizer. Best of all, this can be made up to 3 days ahead of time!
