Apple cinnamon pork chops

Everyone knows that pork chops and applesauce are a winning combination, and an epic comfort food duo.

I don’t have applesauce right now, but I do have a bunch of fresh apples ready for eating. Apples are a perfect autumn ingredient, and for once I’m not using them to make a dessert – they are also wonderful in savory dishes. Baking apples with sugar and spices will soften the fruit and create a wonderful caramelized syrup that would go perfectly with seasoned pork.

After trying this out, I realized I was 100% right. This is DELICIOUS. We ate our pork with french fries, but this would be even better with roasted (or mashed) sweet potatoes, a green salad, and some warm crusty bread. YUM!
