Skillet Pork Chop Sauté with Peaches


Take advantage of the fresh peaches in abundance at the Market and serve this quick and easy recipe for a busy weeknight.  Out meat vendors have your chops, Mavra’s has your oil, honey is readily available and so is the Amish butter from Pastured Perfect.  Grab the broth from your panty and you are good to go.  Tip:  Serve it over quick-cooking couscous.
