Fruit and Pork always seem to have an affinity for eachother...And as fall comes on Cranberries start to come to the fore...Here I've combined whole berry Cranberry sauce(I've used canned but your own home made would be even better)and a wonderful Peach Habenerro jam, I buy at a local farmers market; if you live in the QCA, check your local Hy-Vee-look for Fuzzy Inferno...Other than that I'm sure that just about any 'spicy' jam/jelly would work OK...

Ingredients

pork chops, double-thick
pinch
salt
pinch
black pepper
1/2 can
whole cranberry sauce
1/4 jar(s)
peach habenarro jam
1/2
onion sliced
1/4 c
dijon mustard
1-2
fresh bay leaves

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Salt chops(I tested with just one)at least one hour before you want to grill...Meanwhile prep all other ingredients...Just before grilling pepper chops...Light charcoal...
2
Grill chops to desired doneness..I like mine about medium-just a bit pink in the center; remember the chops will continue to cook a bit as they rest...
3
While chops are resting, saute onions in a small saute/fry pan(this can be done either on the grill, or on your stove top-but I like the grill best for the slight smokey flavor)...A couple of fresh bay leaves are a nice addition...
4
After onions have started to brown, add cranberry sauce...When starting to bubble add peach habenerro jam(I get mine from a local maker at a farmers market-I don't really know how to tell you to make it)stir until combined...
5
Add dijon mustard and stir until combined...Dress chops with sauce and serve...Adding any side you like...I'd recommend say mashed sweet potatoes, or something like that...
