Grilled Pork Chops with Fresh Currant Marinade & Sauce

Fresh currant berries are the culinary pearls of the fruit family. Actually a member of the gooseberry family native to Europe, currants also grow here. While black currants make delicious juice, fresh, I like white or red currants. Each tiny fruit pops with a burst of tart sweetness, with flavor a bit like cranberry, but brighter. Thinking those flavors would be very nice with meat, sent me to the kitchen to work up both a sauce, and marinade to prepare for nice, fat grilled bone-in pork chops.

To make it, you’ll use most of the same ingredients in the marinade and the sauce. (The sauce also has some port, fresh lemon, shallot and agave nectar in it.) I love these chops with garlic mashed potatoes and quick-sauteed baby spinach.
