Honey Roasted Apples - Crispy while soft, sweet while salty, these Honey Roasted Apples are an absolute amazing side to a for pork, chicken and stuffed pastas.As a chef clients will often ask me to recommend menus when I am working with them for dinner parties. Usually steak or seafood is requested but I would sometimes get a client who wanted pork for their main entree. My ears would perk up as this side is one of my favorite to make.

I would quickly tell them about my double cut salt and herb crusted bone in pork chop with Crispy Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes. If they liked where I was going, I would tell them about these Honey Roasted Apples. An adaptation of a Michael Chiarello recipe, these are crispy while soft, sweet while salty and they are an absolute amazing side to a pork dish [I’ve also made them with chicken and with stuffed pastas].

They are deceivingly easy and taste like you know some kind of kitchen wizardry that elevates honey and apples to a whole other level. The secret? Some butter, a good hot cast iron skillet and the play between kosher salt and honey. Make this side dish, you won’t be sorry.
