This meal is extra special because it’s food that we’ve worked hard for. The pork comes from the pigs that Ed’s family raised. The maple syrup comes from either my family or Ed’s family, depending on which bottle I grab out of the fridge. I serve applesauce alongside the pork chops, homemade and canned last fall from apples that my mom and I picked on the farm.
- 2 bone-in pork chops (or 1 per person)
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp grainy mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
Season pork chops on each side with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, mix maple syrup and mustard, then spread on to the chops. Bake at 375°F for 30-40 minutes until cooked through. Serve with applesauce.
