Berkshire Pork Chops & Grits with Arugula & Muscadine Salad
Ever wonder why pork is so often paired with apples? It’s because the meat has a hint of sweetness that creates an affinity with many fruits. One late-summer fruit near and dear to Southerners’ hearts, muscadines, is among pork’s natural partners. A little sugar, salt and vinegar help release their juices and create a dressing for the salad. Peppery arugula is the perfect green balance the sweetness, especially with the contrast of tart elderberry jam from Fairywood Thicket Farms, located just southwest of Atlanta, GA.
