Combine cherries and apple juice in a small saucepan over low heat for 15 minutes. While cooking sauce, heat grill. Grill pork chops approximately 3–4 minutes on each side until cooked through (internal temperature should be 160˚F). Pour hot apple juice and cherries into a small food processor and add thyme, honey, balsamic vinegar, and cornstarch. Pulse a few times. Add sauce back to saucepan over low heat and stir until thickened, about 3 minutes. Pour sauce (approximately 1/2 cup) evenly over cooked pork chops and serve.
Yield: 4 servings. Serving size: 1 pork chop with sauce.
