    I have to admit that when I read this recipe the first time, I thought the ingredients sounded a bit strange, but, I tried it anyways. I have to say it ended up tasting a bit strange as well. I followed the recipe exactly as written, and found that there was way too much cranberry taste. The sweet maple syrup mixed with the tart cranberries and the balsamic vinegar made for a strange taste that I probably wouldn't care to eat again. 1 good thing about the recipe was that the pork chops were cooked perfectly. still juicy (not dry). Overall, a bit of a dissapointment. Could find a better pork chop recipe I think.
