Would you eat your sausages with marmalade ?

Yesterday I heard of somebody eating a sausage covered with marmalade for breakfast. I had never heard of this before , but apparently it is quite a popular dish and a tasty way to serve sausages. Would you eat a sausage if it was covered in marmalade?

I don't put marmalade on sausages after they are cooked but I do sometimes baste them in a watered down mix of marmalade (or mango chutney) as they cook in the oven. The sweet/sharp caramelised fruity taste with the pork works well. I also sometimes bake a ham with a marmalade baste (after I have scored the fat and plugged the cloves in the intersections) and pork chops or loin steaks go very well with an orange sauce made with some strands of zest, a little orange juice added to some stock or gravy mix. I know that apple sauce is the usual accompaniment to roast pork, just as redcurrant jelly is traditional with lamb, orange with goose or duck, cranberry sauce with turkey or chicken and gooseberry sauce with mackerel. Actually, any of these tart fruit sauces go well with most meats, fish or fowl, especially when they are fatty or oily.

I wouldn't, but I don't like marmalade! However, I have had all sorts of other unusual food combinations. I've been told that some of the combinations sound horrible but I remind people who say that there is always a first person to combine ingredients. I don't understand why you'd put cheese on chicken but that's quite popular!

Ummm...if the sausage doesn't contain parts that are not meat, I will maybe eat some. I try to eat less meat. Do you know how sausage is being made ? I think you wouldn't wanna know. The marmalade can be tasty on bread, maybe on a piece of a baked chicken as a spice... The combination of sweet and salty can strengthen the tastes. It's like having some salt seeds inside a cookie with chocolate pieces.
