Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups blackberry jam

  • 1/2

    cup tomato ketchup

  • 1/2

    cup firmly-packed brown sugar

  • 1 to 2

    teaspoons minced fresh ginger or to taste

  • 1 to 2

    teaspoons hot sauce or to taste

  • 1/2

    teaspoon freshly-ground pepper

  • 1

    (4 to 5 pound) rack pork spareribs

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a food processor or blender, place blackberry jam, ketchup, brown sugar, ginger, hot sauce, and pepper; whirl until ingredients are pureed. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add blackberry mixture and bring to a boil; boil 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and set aside. Rinse ribs and pat dry. Trim and discard any excess fat. In a large pan, either barbecue or bake 40 minutes until well browned, turning ribs over at 20 minutes. Baste one side of ribs with 1/3 of prepared blackberry sauce; turn ribs sauce side down and cook 10 minutes or until sauce browns and forms a thick, sticky glaze. Baste top of ribs with 1/3 of blackberry sauce, turn over, and cook and additional 10 minutes or until sauce browns and forms a thick, sticky glaze. Ribs are done when they are tender enough to easily pull from the bones and the internal temperature registers 165 degrees F. on your instant-read meat thermometer. This is the type of thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking. I get many readers asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the Thermapen 5 Thermometer (show in the photo on the right). Originally designed for professional users, this super-fast thermometer is used by chefs all over the world.

Transfer ribs to a serving platter or individual serving plates and pour remaining blackberry sauce over ribs. Serve immediately.
