I have a guest for the weekend and so I made something a bigger more expansive than I would were I on my own.
Three large pork chops were delivered by the aforementioned guest, along with sauerkraut… as Dr. Maturin would observe, a fine antiscorbutic.
As I turned on the Minnesota Golden Gopher men’s hockey game, I got out a glass pan, since I intended to do these in the oven.
Lay down a bed of kraut.
"But Father! But Father!" you may be saying. Shouldn’t you clear off the flies before …"
No… no… not flies. These are juniper berries!
Also mixed in with the sauerkraut is a chopped up medium sized yellow onion.
I salted and peppered and added dry white wine.
For some color at the last minute, some chopped green onion.
I salted and peppered the porkchops and just set them on top.
Oven… 350…. for a while. I think it must have been about an hour.
Served with Yukon Gold potatoes… pork chops and sauerkraut with onion and juniper.
As Preserved Killick would have lamented, "Which they left nary a scrap".
Gophers’ victory over hated North Dakota.
Tonight, I think I will do sausage and eggs and hashbrowns and watch them beat ND again.
