Piggie and Cranberries

Autumn Pork Chops

8 pork chops (boneless, ½-3/4” thick)
½ c. good apple juice (martinelli’s for instance or whatever else)
½ c. cranberries
1 tsp salt
¼ c. brown sugar, packed
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon

4 large apples, peeled and cut into slices
½ cup water

Brown chops in a greased skillet over medium heat (I use olive oil, pour it into the skillet, let it get really hot, and then place the chops in, brown each side). Arrange chops in a shallow casserole dish. Pour apple juice over the chops and sprinkle with cranberries. Cover and bake and 350 for 45 minutes. Turn chops. Combine brown sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon and coat apple wedges with this mixture. Arrange apples around the chops. Sprinkle apples with the remaining mixture, then pour water over all. Cover and bake an additional 15 minutes. {I hope this works out for you, Ash.. Just make sure everything is seasoned well before you bake it, i.e. salt and pepper}. Garnish with rosemary sprigs.
