Ingredients

Pepper Jelly:
Pork Chops:

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For the pepper jelly: Combine the sugar, vinegar, pineapple juice, roasted bell peppers and jalapeno. Blend using a food processor or immersion blender. Place the puree in a 2-quart saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. Add the pectin and continue to boil for 60 seconds, at which point add the frozen peppers to stop the cooking process. Pour the jelly into a metal container and chill in an ice bath for about 1 hour until it sets, or overnight in the refrigerator. 

For the pork chops: Using the toothy side of a meat tenderizer, pound the pork chops to about 1/2-inch thickness. Add the blackening seasoning, salt and pepper to the flour and mix thoroughly. Dredge the chops in the seasoned flour, dip in the buttermilk and then back into the flour (using one hand to work in the flour, and the other for dipping in the buttermilk). Allow to rest for at least a minute or so to allow the breader to set up. 

Pour the oil into a deep, heavy pot (cast iron is best), enough so that the pork chop has room to float, but there needs to be a few inches of clearance so that it doesn't overflow when you are frying. Heat the oil to 355 degrees F. Use a deep-fry thermometer to get the temperature right; too high and your food will burn on the outside before it is cooked on the inside, and too low your food will come out greasy and soggy. 

Gently the drop pork chops 1 or 2 at a time, but don't crowd the pot. Fry until golden brown on the outside, about 7 minutes. Serve with the pepper jelly.
