Peachy Pork Chops

This year the peaches have been wonderful!  Our family has eaten peaches in a number of different ways, including Peach Pork Chops.  It may sound a little crazy, but it was really good.

1 Tbsp vegetable oil
4 boneless pork chops (1" thick)
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup Peach Preserves
2 cups fresh peaches (peeled and sliced)
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 Tbsp honey mustard
1 Tbsp cider vinegar

Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium heat.  Season the pork chops with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.  Add the pork chops in a single layer to the saute pan and brown for 2 minutes per side.  Remove the pork chops from the pan and set aside.  Add the broth and cook over high heat, scraping up browned bits from the pan.  Reduce the heat to low.  Peel and slice the peaches.  Stir together the peach preserves, two cups peaches, ginger, honey mustard, vinegar and remaining 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper in a bowl.  Stir the peach mixture into the pan.  Return the pork chops to the pan and baste with the jam mixture.  Cover the pan and simmer for 15 minutes.

This would be great served with corn on the cob.  That's one of my favorite foods!  I think it just may be one of my grandson, Christian's favorites too.  Take a look at the pictures and video on Paul & Katy's blog of Christian eating his corn on the cob.  Just click on the link to The Presson Family Blog.   This is too precious to miss!
