Remove your pork chop from the fridge and place on a rack to temper on the counter.
Pre-heat your grill to medium-high heat, in a small mixing bowl combine your cider, burnt honey, and sofrito together until it forms a thick paste.
As your grill comes up to temp, place the bottom off of the leek on the grill to char completely until it is fully blackened, hold your leek off to the side wrapped in tinfoil. Charr the top of your leeks and leave off to the side to cool.
Baste your pork chop on each side before placing on the grill, flip every 3-4 basting each side as you flip.
As your pork is cooking chop up your parsley and leek tops and place in bowl, zest one whole lemon add your olive oil, Aleppo pepper, salt, and fennel pollen. Set bowl off to the side to let your flavor marinade together.
Remove your leek bottom from the tinfoil and peel back the charred skin to revile a very soft and tender center-cut your leeks into thick coins and place in a bowl with crushed olives, a splash of dry cider and a spoon full of tour charred leek top salsa.
Remove pork from grill to rest for 5-7 mins. Once rested slice your pork chop on the place, place your marinated leeks and olives on top, and finish your dish with a large spoonful of salsa verde!
Pour and an ice-cold glass of dry cider and enjoy!
Your smoked olives are superb - just the right amount of smoke, crunchy texture - excellent for cocktails, especially martinis.
Only olives I eat
I always say no to olives. I do not like them at all even during trips in Italy, I could not consume them unless they are turned into oil. However, the smoked olives from Wood Fire are the ONLY olives I will eat. I first tried it at the Hudson Farmer's Market and had ordered them online since then. To all people like me who do not like olives, this is a must try.
A must in for any bar or charcuterie board
My favorite olives ever! So delicious and versatile. I have them for martinis, for a good charcuterie board or chicken dish with olives.
Also a great hostess gift that will help you stand out.
Fantastic flavor with multiple uses
