John & I went to Temecula for a quick weekend get-away. We picked up some gourmet items at the South Coast Winery. One of them was this Spicy Apple Garlic Jam. We also picked up some White Port at a wine tasting and sale with our PRP Wine broker in Orange, CA. We thought the combination of flavors would be a perfect match for pork, so we thought this dish up in the car on the way home and stopped to buy fresh boneless pork chops at our local market.
