About

Given that I think fruit and mustard go so well with pork, I really wanted to try a mixture with apples (I had 4 that I needed to do something with). I waffled a bit on whether to use chipotle peppers (as I had the other half of that can I used for the chipotle chicken soup), but ultimately I thought I’d go with the safer and more subtle route and use the dijon mustard. The flavor of this dish came out far more subtle than I expected, but it had a really lovely finish. The leftovers have a light enough sweet flavor, that I'm thinking of re-envisioning them as a stir fry.
