This is so quick and easy and so tasty. Instead of using the yummy maple butter on pancakes, one night I thought it would taste great on pork chops, so I added a little bit of salt to make it more savoury and it worked a treat. It's not overpowering so you still get that great taste of pork.
3 tablespoons (60g) butter, at room temperature)
3 teaspoons or capfuls of pure maple syrup
salt to taste
2 pork chops
salt and pepper for seasoning the pork

Mix together the butter, maple syrup and salt until it is combined well. Add more syrup or salt to your liking.
Season the pork with salt and pepper and pan fry with a little oil so it doesn't stick to the pan.
Once the pork has been lightly frying for about 3 minutes, turn over and with a knife spread about 1/2 tablespoon of the maple butter onto the pork.
After another 3 minutes or so, turn the pork over and spread some of the maple butter (again about 1/2 tablespoon) onto that side of the pork, leaving about 1 tablespoon of the maple butter for spreading after the pork has cooked.
Once the chops have cooked through (usually takes about 10 minutes depending on the thickness), rest them on a plate for at least 2 minutes.
Then before eating, spread the remaining butter over the pork.
You could also use some of the maple butter to spread between potatoes in their jackets or whole boiled potatoes.
