Maple Pan Fried Pork Chops with Compound Butter

We are thrilled to say that life is slowing down a bit.  YEAH!  We just came off of a month, and a half of back to back client events, and are now eager to hit the kitchen, and to share fun things with you.  Who doesn’t love fun!

We are beyond excited to announce that we are officially Tonewood Maple Tasting Troupe Ambassadors for the remaining of 2013.  When we were contacted by the fine folks of Tonewood, we immediately knew it would be a great fit as we are huge maple lovers.  Needless to say, we are really eager to learn more about Tonewood and maple.  In turn, we look forward to sharing what we learn as well as new maple inspired recipes with you.  We want you to come back for more sweetness every month, so we will be sharing not only new products with you but also something new and exciting about Tonewood.

One of the things that immediately drew us in with Tonewood is that they offer more than maple syrup, and this was attractive because maple should go beyond pancakes.  Incase you aren’t familiar with Tonewood, they are located in Waitsfield, Vermont.  One of the things that makes their company attractive to us is that they support local farming efforts and are seeking to preserve a family-owned maple production.  In addition, they are collaborating with expert sugar makers to produce pure maple syrups and other single-sources, unblended and free of additives maple products.  When  you taste a Tonewood maple product, you really taste maple which is the way you should be enjoying one of nature’s sweetnesses.

The theme for October was Cooking with Maple.  We received two products to try out, one is their Maple Flakes (amazing in oatmeal) and the second was their Maple Seasoning.  The first product that we really dove into was their Maple Seasoning.  The seasoning is loaded with maple sugar and black pepper with a sprinkling of sea salt, just enough to enhance the maple and pepper.  We decided it would be great used in a compound butter, to enjoy on grilled meats or roasted root vegetables.  Then we took it to another level by pan frying thick cut pork chops that were crusted in more of the seasoning and then finished off with some of the compound butter.  Can you say, AMAZING!

Now I told you there would be some fun beyond learning about maple.  What we think is the real fun part is being able to share something with you.  Along with Tonewood, we would love to offer you a little something.  From now until December 15, 2013, for every purchase of maple seasoning, you will receive another maple seasoning for free.  *Limited to one seasoning per customer  All you need to do is head of to Tonewood, place your order for maple seasoning and use the following code at checkout  CUOCT

Don’t forget to check out our fellow Tonewood Maple Tasting Troupe Ambassadors – am sure they are going to be sharing maple deliciousness with you as well.
