1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram

2 teaspoons butter

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch dice

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/2 cup dry white wine

1/4 cup half and half

1 teaspoon curry powder

Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Heat oil in a large skillet. Sprinkle chops with thyme, and marjoram and salt and pepper. Add to hot olive oil and cook 6-8 minutes per side until just no longer pink inside. Remove to a platter, cover with foil to keep warm.
Stir butter into the same skillet. Add apple and onion. Sauté 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute, stirring. Mix in honey and mustard and then wine, half and half and curry powder. Let simmer about 5 minutes until apples are tender. Return pork chops to sauce and heat.
To serve, place chops on a platter and top with sauce. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
