Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Butter a baking pan and place the pork chops in it.
  3. Press a clove into each chop.
  4. Add the white wine, celery leaves, and bay leaves and put the pan in the preheated oven.
  5. Bake the chops for 30 minutes.
  6. While the pork chops are baking, in a frying pan saute the diced celery in the butter for 5 minutes, and then add the sliced apples and sprinkle with the brown sugar.
  7. Continue cooking over very low heat for 10 minutes, or until the apples are tender but not mushy.
  8. Finish the pork chops by removing the bay leaves and celery leaves and sprinkling the cheese over the top of each chop; baste and then broil for 3 minutes to brown the top.
  9. Serve the celery-apple mixture on the plate as an accompaniment to the pork chops.
  10. Use a few spoons of pan juices to further flavor the celery-apple mixture.

This is quite good. I'm not fond of baked chops so I grilled them and added the wine and herbs to the sauteed apple mixture. The apple/celery/wine mixture would make a great side anytime, not just over pork chops. I wondered what kind of recipes were in the book, Hester. Thanks for sharing this one.
