Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


In a small bowl, mix together rosemary, salt and pepper. Pat mixture onto pork chops. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chops and onion and cook until pork is well browned on each side. Remove pork chops to a plate to keep warm.
To the same skillet add cherries and vinegar. Cook over medium high heat stirring to combine onions, cherries and vinegar. Mix in chicken broth and honey. Continue cooking for 3 minutes. Place pork chops in sauce. Cover and simmer 8-10 minutes over a low heat, just until pork is no longer pink.
