Category: Meat, Appetizers, Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • 10 oz Venison (trimmed weight)
  • 6 oz Belly of pork (trimmed wt.)
  • 2 oz Pitted prunes
  • 1 sm Onion
  • Remains of a pot of tea
  • 3 tb Port
  • Allspice, thyme or Worcester
  • 1 lb Ready-made puff pastry
  • Beaten egg to glaze


Mince the meats fairly finely, chop the onion very finely and mix together.
Season with a good grinding of pepper - but no salt - and some allspice,
thyme or a few shakes of Worcester sauce. Pour on the port and mix well,
then cover and leave for several hours or overnight to allow the flavours
to blend. Cover the prunes with cold tea and leave to soak for several

Season the sausagemeat with salt and roll it into a long, fat sausage
shape. Roll the pastry out to a rectangle and lay the "sausage" down the
length of it. Lay the whole drained prunes on top of the meat. Damp one
long edge with beaten egg, roll up carefully and seal. Alternatively you
may like to enclose the sausage in a decorative pastry plait. In this case,
roll the pastry out to a square, lay the "sausage" down the centre and
place the whole drained prunes on top. Cut the pastry diagonally into
1/2-inch strips on either side of the meat. Damp the end of each pastry
strip with beaten egg then fold the strips alternately from each side, over
the meat to create a plait effect. Seal the pastry ends.

Slide the pastry parcel on to a damp baking sheet and glaze the top. If you
have made a sausage roll, decorate it with pastry leaves and make one or
two steam slits in the top of the pastry. Bake at 425 F (220 C) gas mark 4
for a further 25 minutes or so.
