Pork Chops & Apple/Pear Chutney

Megan Todd


Well it's that time of year... my kitchen sees the most action with Apples. We Love Apples. They are delicious, especially when incorporating them in a meal. And they are great to add flavor to Pork Chops. This recipe is a family fav. My husband's favorite way to eat Pork chops or even top the chutney on a Pork roast.
Yes, Fall is in the air!
