Flavors ~ Apple

The Flavor for this week is Apples!
I immediatly thought of a ton of things to do with apples... but I wanted to try something different.
The flavor profile for Apples is wide open. They can be paired with sweet as sugar and caramel, or savory as cumin or horseradish; They suggest pairing with red cabbage or with pumpkin. The most recommended flavor is Cinnamon.
Pork with Apples and Ginger
3 Tbs fresh minced GINGER
4-5 apples
2 Tbs pure MAPLE SYRUP
1/4 cup chopped PECANS
1 pound PORK cutlets
3 Tbs fresh ROSEMARY
Preheat the oven to 350°
Combine 3 tablespoons olive oil with minced rosemary and set aside for the oil wo absorb some of the rosemary flavor.
Peel and slice apples into 1/2 inch slices. Spread a baking dish with foil. Toss the apples and ginger with syrup and oil. Spread the apples onto the foil and sprinkle with sugar and pecans. Gather the foil and seal. Bake for 30 minutes until apples are tender.
Pour the rosemary oil into a skillet. Pan fry chops will browned on both sides.
Place chops in a baking dish, cover with baked apples and sauce. Bake until pork is cooked to 160°Serve warm pork with baked apples, pecans and rosemary.

Happy Cooking y'all~
