Fig Spread & Chili Glazed Pork Chops

Divina Fig Spread becomes the star ingredient when paired with pork and Brussels sprouts in this recipe as it provides a sweet brightness that will wow your family at dinnertime. We love adding fig spread to all our veggies before roasting but they’re especially perfect for sprouts, carrots and sweet potatoes.
