Sweet and spicy, spicy and sweet… the order doesn't matter; the flavor pairing and the way it delights the tongue's fickle taste buds does. This pork is perfectly glazed with a combination of softly sweet apple, slight tang of pepper jelly, and a hint of citrus from a dash of lime juice. And you won't have any “sufferin’” making this nutty succotash, replete with corn, green beans, and crunchy good almonds. Sugar and spice… it makes everything nice!
