Pork Chops with Apple, Walnut, and Raisin Compote

Anyone else out there love pork chops and applesauce? While I’m sure I could find some Whole 30 compliant applesauce at the store, I decided to just make my own apple, walnut, and raisin compote to go on top of these grilled pork chops. You could cook it a little longer and use a hand…
