   and Sour Sauce
   
   Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper to taste and set
   aside. Cut the Apples into quarters. Peel the quarters
   and discard the core. Dredge the chops in flour. Heat
   the oil in a large heavy skillet, and add the chops.
   Cook until well browned on one side, about 5 minutes.
   Turn the chops and continue cooking about 5 minutes.
   Remove the chops, and add the quartered apples. Cook
   about 2 minutes turning the apples often. Remove the
   apples and pour off the fat from the skillet. Add the
   shallots and vinegar and cook briefly, stirring with a
   wooden spoon. Add the broth and honey. Cook 1 minute
   and stir in the tomato paste. Return the chops and
   apples to the skillet. Spoon sauce over them, and
   cover closely. Cook ten minutes, and serve chops
   covered with sauce.
