Creamy Pork and Apples with Cornmeal Biscuits

1 sm Onion, finely chopped
3 cl Garlic, minced
2 lg Tart green apples; peeled, cored and sliced
2 ts Each sugar and dry sage
1/4 ts Each white pepper and nutmeg
2 1/2 lb Boneless leg of pork or loin trimmed/cut into 1" cubes
3 tb All purpose flour
1/2 c Dry white wine
Cornmeal-yogurt biscuits*
1 1/2 tb Cornstarch
1/3 c Whipping cream
Salt


In a 3 quart or larger slow cooker, combine onion, garlic and apples; sprinkle with sugar, sage, white pepper and nutmeg. Coat pork cubes with flour, then arrange over apple mixture. Pour in wine. Cover and cook at low setting until pork is very tender (7-8+hrs). When pork is almost done, prepare Cornmeal-Yogurt biscuits. While biscuits are baking, mix cornstarch and cream in a small bowl; blend into pork mixture. Increase cooker heat setting to high. Cover and cook until sauce is hot and bubbly (10-15 more minutes). Season to taste with salt. Arrange 6-8 biscuits around edge of pork mixture in cooker. Serve remaining biscuits in a basket.

Cornmeal-Yogurt biscuits: In a large bowl stir together 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour, 1/2 c. yellow cornmeal, 1 tbsp. baking powder, 1 tsp sugar and 1/2 tsp. salt. Dice 1/3 cup cold butter or margarine; with a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut butter into flour mixture until mix resembles coarse crumbs. Add 3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt; stir just until mixture forms a sticky dough. Gather dough into a ball and knead gently on a floured board; then roll or pat out about 1/2 inch thick. Using a floured 2 1/2" cutter, cut dough into 12 rounds. Place about 1" apart, on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 450 oven until golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Serve hot.
