  • Step 1

    Peel, core and cut the apple into about 18 even slices.
  • Step 2

    Trim the stems, fronds and any brown bits from the fennel bulb. Cut the bulb in half, through the base. Cut core from each piece and discard, then slice the remaining fennel into strips.
  • Step 3

    Toss the fennel strips, apple slices and oil together in a large cast iron skillet and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  • Step 4

    Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally. If mixture becomes too dry, add a couple tablespoons of water. Cook until apples start browning in spots, about 7 minutes
  • Step 5

    Push the fennel and apples to one side of the pan and add the sausage links. Continue cooking until the sausages turn brown and fennel is tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Step 6

    Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Garnish with parsley if desired.
