Whether you're biting into tangy pulled pork piled onto a soft white bun or tender medallions of tenderloin, you're going to get one thing from pork: flavor. Pork comes in many different cuts, and each performs differently in the pan. The shoulder braises beautifully, resulting in tender, moist shreds, while the lean tenderloin is best on the grill or in the oven. Pork chop recipes can be quickly sautéed, and are great paired with applesauce or a slaw. As for bacon, well, you can use it in just about anything: Try bacon-wrapped meatloaf, bacon deviled eggs or stick to a classic: a BLT made with garden-fresh tomatoes.See Popular Pork Recipes

Before cooking the locally raised Berkshire pork they sell, butcher-shop owners Jessica and Joshua Applestone like to brine it for a few hours in a mixture of juniper berries, orange zest, and peppercorns to help season the meat and keep it juicy. Then Jessica Applestone recommends cooking it simply with a sprig of rosemary. "Salt, pepper, and flame is all you need. Why lose the beauty of the meat by adding more?" she says. The brine works well for a number of pork cuts, including rib chops, loin chops (bone-in or boneless), tenderloin, and ribs.
