We really enjoyed this recipe. The apple & ginger give an added taste that compliments the pork & peppers. I used plum jam (that's what I had on hand) and cut the recipe in half. Easy recipe that is healthy & very tasty

Ssssssssshhhhhhhhh! Please don't tell anyone I made this recipe! Actually, I'm so pleased with it I could shout it from the rooftops! I won't eat pork, so I used chicken breast instead (and doucled it to a full pound). The only other substitution I did was instead of one cup of chopped green bell peppers I just added a chopped hot Moroccan pepper, so I really only had 2 cups of peppers and a bit more. I used Granny Smith apples for a bit of bite. Served this over quinoa and found this to be very flavorable. I'm certainly going to make this again.

We didn't think this was that great...a lot of chopping work for not much taste. Maybe it was the winter apples. Pork can be quite tasteless, so I think it would go better with more flavorful fruits like apricots or pineapples. Apple goes well with chicken, so I may try this again with the bird.
