Ingredients

3/4 cup plum preserves
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 pounds assorted fresh sausages

Preparation

1. Preheat grill to 300° to 350° (medium) heat. Cook first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring often, 5 minutes; reserve half of mixture.

Note:

Start with an Oktoberfest- or Märzen-style beer, each a delicious complement to the sausage board.

Try Bob's '47 Oktoberfest, Boulevard Brewing Co. (Missouri) or Clawhammer Oktoberfest, Highland Brewing Company (North Carolina)
