 Normandy Brochettes Recipe

A brochette is simply the French word for skewer. Use good quality fillet pork and combine with sweet red apples. The pork is marinated in cider and finely chopped sage before cooking.

COOK'S NOTES ON NORMANDY BROCHETTES
The tastiest (and most expensive!) cut of pork is fillet. It is ideal for recipes like this where the cooking time is short.

The pork can be left in the marinade for up to 24 hours if stored in the fridge. But cut the apples immediately before cooking to keep their flesh white. This recipe is ideal for the barbecue but also excellent when cooked under the grill.

Serve with crusty French bread and a simple salad or rice.

Uncooked Normandy Brochettes While the pork is marinating, start the barbecue and let the coals start to turn white before cooking. Chop the apples into quarters and remove the core from each. Leave the skin on. Chop the apples into chunks about the size of the pork cubes. Place them in the marinade and mix well to ensure the apples are fully coated.
