2 jars (4 ½ ounces each) strained peaches or apricots (baby food or pureed canned or bottled)
2 tsp ginger
1/3 c catsup
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 c vinegar
2 TB soy sauce
1/2 c brown sugar
Dash pepper, salt
4 pounds boneless spareribs
Boil ribs in water for about 20 minutes. This removes some of the fat and makes them extra tender. Mix fruit, catsup, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and garlic; set aside. Rub ribs on both sides with salt and pepper.
Cooking the ribs can be done one of two ways.
1- Put them in the crock pot and pour sauce over them. Let them cook for about 6 hours.
2- Place ribs, meat side up, in a foil-lined shallow pan. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes. Pour sauce over ribs. Continue baking at 350 for 1 ½ hours, basting with sauce frequently.
