My daughter gave me this recipe. She said she had it for years before trying it and now it's one of their favorites. I made this the other night and it's one of our favorites too.

This sweet, salty and simple recipe livens up pork chops and is perfect for a summer lunch, dinner or potluck! I wasn't sure how this dish was going to turn out when I taste tested the sauce early on. I was a little worried that it might be too sweet. But after simmering for 2 hours, the chops were very tender and an absolutely perfect blend of flavors. This is a dish that will be repeated often at our dinner table. Perfect for a potluck, luncheon ... or anytime really! The Test Kitchen
