Preparation time 20mins
Cooking time 40mins
Cut sausage into bite-size slices, 1/2 to 1-inch thick.
In a large skillet or pot over medium-high heat, add the sliced sausage and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer about 5 minutes to render some of the fat. Drain off the liquid and lightly brown the sausage. Remove sausages from skillet to drain on paper towels. Set aside.
In a medium pot over medium heat, bring the pineapple and the juice, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, salt, and red peppers to a boil, stirring constantly; then reduce heat by 1 mark and let boil for 5 to 6 minutes or until sauce is reduced and thickened somewhat, stirring frequently.
Add the sausage to the sauce and continue to simmer a few more minutes to heat through and thicken the sauce as desired.
Transfer to a serving dish or a small crock pot set on warm setting. Use toothpicks to serve sausages.
