These cranberry pork chops are a snap to cook with fresh cranberries, apple, and seasonings. The chops are seared and then baked with seasonings. A fruity mixture of cranberries and diced apples is added to the pork chops about halfway through the baking time.

Feel free to use diced pears or apricots in the recipe instead of apples.

Serve these tasty chops with rice or baked potatoes and steamed vegetables.
