One of our favorite things about winter cooking is its use of bright, sweet citrus in savory applications. Here, we’re sautéing clementine with vinegar, ginger and a bit of sugar to create a flavorful chutney for our juicy pork chops. Then, we’re stirring roasted Brussels sprouts into our hearty freekeh salad to accent the grain’s nutty notes and add another delicious seasonal touch.
