Maple-Crafted Pork Chops

Gotta love when something so delicious is so easy to make. The chops are moist and the glaze is sweet & tangy and will have you licking your plate. Inspired by a dish we used to enjoy many years ago, around the huge circular fireplace in the center of the dining room at Johnny Seesaw's, in Peru, VT. Pairs well with Brussels sprouts or any root veggies. Photos by Michelle Spanedda (@spaneds)
