Quick Pork Saute with Blackberries
A snappy pan sauce made with shallots, port and fruity blackberry nectar transforms basic pork chops into a special-occasion dinner. A touch of butter swirled in at the end of cooking gives the sauce a rich finish. You can substitute flattened boneless chicken breast, turkey cutlets or veal scallops for pork; adjust cooking time accordingly.
Ingredient Note: You can find a variety of berry juices and nectars in natural-foods stores or the natural-foods section of your supermarket. Enjoy some in a refreshing spritzer. Look for black currant liqueur (cassis) at a liquor store.
Tip: To freeze fresh berries: Wash berries and pat dry. Spread in a single layer on a tray, cover with plastic wrap and freeze until solid. Pack frozen fruit into ziplock bags, taking care to remove air from the bags. Freeze for up to 1 year.
