Recipe by French Tart
READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Put the chops & apple halves into a large buttered ovenproof dish – along side each other, it does not matter if they fit snugly.
  • Mix the maple syrup, sugar, mustard and cider together to make a thickish, sludgy syrupy, paste and spread over the top of the chops & apples.
  • Allow to rest/marinade at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 2250C/450F/Gas 6.
  • Sprinkle the chopped onion over the top of the chops and apples, and place several sprigs of fresh thyme on top.
  • Season well with freshly ground pepper and sea salt.
  • Bake for about 45 to 60 minutes, or until chops are and apples are cooked, soft and golden brown and glazed. (Cooking time depends on the thickness ans size of the chops).
  • You can flash the chops and apples under a grill to achieve a deeper and stickier glaze.
  • Serve each person with one chop, one-half of apple and some of the juices and the glaze. Garnish with some fresh thyme.
