Harvest Sausage Patties

1 lb. ground pork
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup apple, finely chopped
1/4 cup cracker crumbs
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. dried sage or 1 tsp. fresh sage, minced
1 egg

Thoroughly mix together all ingredients (use your hands).
Chill at least 3 hours or overnight.
To form patties, dip your hands into cool water and shape patties with damp hands (this prevents the mixture from sticking to your hands).
Fry on medium-low heat for 5 minutes each side or until cooked through.
