From the Test Kitchen

A topping of crisp apple glazed with butter, tart sherry vinegar, and woodsy sage transforms simple seared pork chops into the perfect early autumn meal. For another dose of seasonal flavor, we’re serving them with roasted broccoli and delicata squash drizzled with a tangy-sweet combo of mustard and maple syrup.
