    Ingredients

    • 2 cups corn bread
    • canola oil for spraying
    • 1/2 cup chicken stock
    • salt to taste
    • 2 TB dried cherries
    • pepper to taste
    • 2 TB dark raisins
    • 1 TB small dried apricots, diced
    • 1 TB fresh sage, chopped
    • 1 TB fresh thyme, chopped
    • 6 boneless center cut pork chops, approximately 11/2 inches thick

    Directions

    Crumble the cornbread into a mixing bowl. Heat the chicken stock in a
    small sauce pan. Add the dried cherries, raisins and apricots to the
    chicken stock and allow to steep for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the stock
    with fruit into the cornbread. Stir in the sage and thyme, adding
    salt and pepper to taste, until all ingredients are well incorporated.
    Set aside.

    Using a sharp boning knife, cut a pocket in the fleshy side of the pork chop forming a small pocket to insert the stuffing. Stuff cornbread mixture into the pockets, dividing equally among the pork chops. Seal the pocket with a toothpick cut in half (use both ends to pinch the pocket shut).

    Preheat the oven to 375°F.

    Spray the pork chops with canola oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. In a medium size skillet, sauté each pork chop for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove each pork chop and place in a sheet pan.
    Cook the pork chops in the oven for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
    When done, an instant read thermometer should read 155°F when inserted into the center of the cornbread stuffing. Serves 6

Remove artichokes from Dutch oven; cool until easy to handle. Do not discard water in Dutch oven. Remove tiny leaves from artichoke centers. Scrape out, discard choke. Rince artichokes with running warm water, drain.

    While artichokes are steaming, in 12 inch skillet over medium heat, in hot sald oil, cook red pepper until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Add ham and green onions and cook about 5 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Remove skillet from heat; stir in corn with it’s liquid. Crumble corn bread into vegetable mixture in skillet. Mix well.

    Spoon corn-bread mixture into centers and between leaves of artichokes. Return artichokes to wire rack above water in the same Dutch oven. Over high heat, heat water to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and steam artichokes 25-30 minutes until a leaf can be pulled off easily. Makes 4 main dish servings.
