Skillet Pineapple and Sausage Links

Skillet Pineapple and Sausage Links

“Skillet Pineapple and Links” cooks in about 20 minutes.
Vegetables can be cut and sliced ahead and kept
chilled until ready to cook. If the crowd’s big or the feasters
extra hungry, the recipe will expand nicely. A good suggestion
for quick buffet get togethers.

1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks (reserve juice)
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup sliced onion
1 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup green bell pepper strips
3/4 teaspoon salt
8 smoky link sausages or frankfurters, scored
1/2 cup syrup (juice) from canned pineapple
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon catsup
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 cups hot cooked rice
