Lamb Chops are very tasty meal that is very quick to prepare and so versatile with ingredients you can use to compliment them. This is a sweeter version using natural sweeteners like honey and grapes. The white wine also gives it a fruity taste that balances all of the flavors.
Lamb has been consumed for thousands of years, especially in the Mediterranean. It has a little bit of an acquired taste, but one I do enjoy. It is a red meat that has the least amount of fat. Lamb is high in omega 3 fatty acids, (which are good for your heart), folate, vitamin B12 and other vitamins of the B complex family. It is also high in antioxidants which help build a strong immune system.
I decided to create a sweeter version of lamb by using organic honey and grapes, natural sweeteners and served it with some mashed potatoes.

Remove the chops and keep warm. In the same skillet place the remaining rosemary and the grapes. Cook for about 8 minutes, moving them around so they do not burn. Add the wine and cook down for 2 minutes. Add the honey and cook additional 2 minutes. Stirring to incorporate the ingredients.
Serve the chops over mashed red potatoes or your favorite side and pour the sauce with grapes over the meat. Enjoy!
