ork Chops and Fried Apples RecipeMy pork chops and baked apples dish is delish.  It had been a while since I made pork chops regularly because I struggled to find a pork chop recipe that my family enjoyed.  Oh a whin, I decided to buy some beautiful thick-cut chops, but they sat in my freezer for several weeks because I had no inspiration.

When I got a craving for baked apples one day, those pork chops popped into my mind and I could just taste a lovely ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon combo made into a sweet and savory glaze to complement the apples.  A few tweaks on my original recipe and I had a new family favorite on the menu!
