       Title: SCHLESISCHES HIMMELREICH (SILESIAN PORK)
  Categories: Pork, German
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       1 lb Dried fruit (prunes,
            -apricots, apples, pears)
       4    Fine pork chops or 1 lb lean
            -pork steaks
       2 oz (4 Tbsp) lard or butter
  
   You will need a medium-sized stewpan with a lid.  Soak the fruit for a
   couple of hours - or overnight if possible - in either plain water or cold
   tea which will give a darker, richer juice to cover.
   
   Fry the chops in the fat, turning them once, so they take color.  Add the
   fruit and the soaking liquid.  Cover and simmer all together for 30 to 35
   minutes, or until the fruit is soft and the chops cooked through.
   
   Serve with potato dumplings.
   
   Serves 4. Time: Start the day before; 10 minutes plus 35 minutes cooking.
