From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s delicious chutney, a spiced, fruit-based condiment, takes full advantage of one of the season’s finest ingredients: tart, fresh cranberries. Mustard seeds give our chutney fantastic pops of texture, while fresh ginger adds an element of aromatic spice. With the perfect balance of sweet and sour, it’s an irresistible partner for our flavorful pork chops. On the side, warm farro and roasted Brussels sprouts complement the chops with even more seasonal flair.
