Apple Cider Baked Pork Chops

It may not feel exactly like “Autumn” in Florida (yet) the apple cider is everywhere! Several years ago I came up with this original recipe and it is a tradition every October 1st. I use Bone-in Pork Chops, seasoned with garlic salt, black pepper, onion powder, placed in a non-stick baking sheet pan with 1/2 cup apple cider (not apple juice), pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg, cover with foil and bake @ 425 F for 35 minutes.

I make a simple celery and cider sauce to pour over the baked chops. 2 celery stalks, diced, fresh chopped parsley, 1/4 cup apple cider in a small sauce pan on low heat, simmer 10 minutes (or until celery is tender).

Remove Pork Chops from oven, plate and spoon on some sauce.

Enjoy-Its a favorite here!

  2. Yummmmmmm sounds like the essence of Autumn, does it ever feel like Fall in Florida? Is it hot year round? I’m afraid I’m ignorant of how the seasons appear in tropical settings. Back to the pork chops, they sound so delicious, love the cider and pork combo, really wonderful.

    1. Whenever the humidity lowers and temps drop to 70’s-low 80;s we feel the crispness in the air from the Ocean Breezes. The stores decorate all holiday and seasons (sometimes too early-LOL). Apples, pumpkins, cider, costumes, candy corn its all here and more…Hay rides inland, etc. So a sub-tropical climate technically remains hurricane season until November then we sometimes get a bit cooler temps in December. January can be our cooler month most times. When you are accustomed to 90’s high humidity for months on end this is a kind relief from it. Certainly nothing like the Northeast weather. xo

      1. I think that’s why people from up North head to Florida for the winter. Yes I can understand how 70’s and 80’s would be a welcome change for 90+ temps 👍
