"I prepared these delicious pork chops tonight. I used sugar free apricot preserves as the only substitution to the recipe. We will be having this recipe again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."

"I used peach preserves instead of apricot because I picked up the wrong jar by accident. It was a happy mistake because it turned out great! I used it on country style ribs and my husband really enjoyed them."

"These few simple ingredients make a power house glaze! The vibrant taste of the glaze is spectacular. Perfect combination of flavors, my son liked extra 'glaze' on his. We used two pork tenderloins. This is a new favorite!!!"
