A glaze of cherries and currants on these chops pairs nicely with a Washington state Merlot
Savvy match: The cherries and currants in the glaze of these pork chops play well with almost any red wine, but gentle, easy-going Merlot with its fruit flavors and supple tannin is a delightful pairing for this dish. There’s a lot of Merlot to choose from out there, and we’re partial to those from the Pacific Northwest; its among the best Washington wines.
Summer grilling isn’t just for steaks and burgers. Everyone loves barbecue ribs, but they can take all day. Pork chops grilled with a sweet balsamic cherry glaze is a perfect summer entrée that steps things up a notch. Fresh ripe cherries simmered in balsamic with currant jelly will make the glaze.
