TRIED ’N’ TRUE: A recipe from a family who loves pork chops

TERRE HAUTE — My family loves pork chops. I think that was my husband’s folks’ favorite. They were our boys’ favorite. Well with my apple trees, I made applesauce, apple butter, about anything you could think of.

When the grandkids came along, they enjoyed the same things, but they didn’t want the apples if they could see them. So I tried applesauce in this recipe. Why not? You have the same flavor. Everyone enjoyed them. Hope you enjoy these as much.

Applesauce Pork Chops

6 thick pork chops

salt and pepper

1⁄2 cup brown sugar
