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.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the Brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise. Peel and mince the ginger. Peel and mince the shallot.

3 Roast the Brussels sprouts & finish the farro:

While the farro cooks, place the Brussels sprouts on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to thoroughly coat.

While the Brussels sprouts roast, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot.

Add the cranberries and mustard seeds; cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the sugar, remaining vinegar and ¼ cup of water (be careful, as the liquid may splatter); cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until thickened and the cranberries have broken down. Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a bowl. Rinse and wipe out the pan.
