Method

  1. Preheat the oven. Cut the carrot in half and then cut each half into four batons, lengthways. Parboil in lightly salted boiling water for 6 minutes, or until almost cooked.
  2. Drain the carrots and transfer to a baking tray. Add the honey, dried rosemary and 1 tsp olive oil. Toss together so that the carrots are evenly coated. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the honey begins to caramelise.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until tender.
  4. While the potatoes cook, heat the remaining oil in a frying pan, season the pork with salt and pepper and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until browned. Transfer to an ovenproof dish and bake in the oven for 5-10 minutes, or until cooked through.
  5. Drain the potatoes and mash with the margarine/butter and milk until smooth and creamy. Stir in the sliced apricots and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve the pork chop with the apricot mash and honey roasted carrots.
