  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 2 quart casserole dish with lid.
  2. Place the flour in a shallow dish. Dip the sausages into the flour to coat evenly.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the sausages, turning to brown all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  4. Using the same skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Stir in the onion, green pepper, garlic, and bay leaves; stir and cook until tender, about 2 minutes. Combine the rice with the pepper mixture; stir and cook until the rice turns opaque, about 3 minutes. Stir in the thyme, salt, chili powder, white and black peppers, red pepper flakes, wine, tomatoes, and chicken broth. Add the sausages; increase heat to high and bring the mixture to a boil. Transfer the rice mixture to the large pot and cover.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
  6. Remove pot from the oven. Stir in the shrimp, pineapple, mango, and apple; blending thoroughly with the rice mixture. Cover and bake until shrimp is cooked, 10 to 15 minutes.

Yummy! I used Quinoa instead of the Rice since that's what I had. I also didn't bother putting it in the oven, just did it all in the saucepan on the stove. Only used pineapple (not other fru...

The jambalaya without fruit wasn't bad it was ok. With the fruit unfortunately it really wasn't very good!! Sorry but I would pass on this one :(

Yum. I used just fresh pineapple and mango. Chose regular smoked sausage and cooked it all in one pan, an enamel coated dutch oven. After first oven cooking, rice looked dry so added the remai...

Made this for dinner and really enjoyed the flavor, however the rice did not cook entirely. Not sure if it was the type of rice I used (traditional long grain brown), or if the ratio of liquid t...

Wow! This recipe truly is a 5-star winner. Following the submitter's review about not including apple in the original submission, I left it out. I agree with others, that it would not have be...
