Becky Luigart-Stayner; Cindy Barr
Yield 10 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork and about 1/2 cup apple mixture)
Showcasing the best of fall's flavors, this hearty dish combines tart apples with smoky bacon, pungent cabbage, and sweet maple syrup. The apples and vegetables cook along with the pork so the flavors are harmonious. Full-flavored, tart apples, such as Granny Smith, Jonagold, Albemarle (Newtown) Pippin, Roxbury Russet, or Winesap, provide the best flavor.
