Rub the pork chops with the crushed garlic, thyme, paprika, sage and salt. Set aside while you make the applesauce.
Place the apples in a saucepan with the cold water and set over a medium heat. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, until the apples are soft. Add the lemon juice, honey, butter and cinnamon. Remove from the heat and serve as it is, or if you would like a smooth applesauce, allow the sauce to cool, then blitz in a blender. You can serve the applesauce warm or cold.
To cook the chops, warm the rapeseed oil in a non-stick pan set over a medium heat. Add the chops and cook for 4 minutes on each side. Serve with the apple sauce on the side.
