    I'm giving this 4 stars, because I altered the recipe enough to change the overall taste. But, the chery almond sauce that I put on the pork chops was awesome!!! I made it as is. What I did different was I marinated the pork chops in some soy sauce, garlic powder, brown sugar, and ginger powder for about an hr before I cooked them. And I didn't use pork loin chops. Used a more fatty kind that was sensational! The mix of the soy and the cherry sauce (that I did baste the pork as it cooked) tasted wonderful!!! It was like a sweet chinese barbeque almost. Would definitely make again!

    This was unbelievably simple and very tasty too. I found it just a little tart, so next time, I will add half the vinegar, then taste it before adding anymore. Next time I'll have a different brand of preserves though, as this one was a gift from a RAK member. If you are looking for a quick mid-week meal, this is it!
