Blackberry Cider Pork Chops

Hi ya'll, last night was very special night, so I wanted to make something in celebrating of the gifts God has recently given to us.  I realize that's an everyday occurrence but we had been struggling with this for almost 6 weeks, so it just seemed like the right thing to do to.  Our go to comfort food, is always classic southern dishes, so this just seemed to fit our craving.  I will be bringing you a separate post on the Mac & Cheese because it has a secret ingredient that I can't wait to share with ya, so be looking for it soon.   

Blackberry Cider Glaze
1/4 cup Blackberry Jam
2 T apple cider vinegar
pinch of salt

Makes approximately 4 (1 T) servings

In a cast iron skillet, over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon bacon grease or butter.  Season pork chops with a little salt & pepper and then place them in the skillet to brown.  Meanwhile in a saucepan, over medium heat, add blackberry jam and cider, bring to boil and then reduce temperature to low and allow it to simmer for about 5-10 mins or until it begins to thicken.  Brush on chops, while they are resting or brush on and place under a broiler to caramelize the sauce, serve & enjoy!

Big southern hugs,
