I never thought to add fruit to barbecue sauce, but after I saw a contest-winning recipe with the two, I decided to try something similar with pork. I'm glad I did—this turned out to be a family favorite! —Lily Julow, Gainesville, FL
Folks love to see a huge platter of these tender barbecued ribs arrive at the table. Since the ribs are cooked ahead, they simply need to be browned and reheated on the grill. I love the easy last-minute preparation and magnificent results. Raves begin with the first bite.
“My friends have asked me to bottle my barbeque sauce, rub and marinades. My favorite saying is, 'You cook it, and they will come.'” And they sure will with these tender ribs on the menu! Thanks to Allan Stackhouse Jr of Jennings, Louisiana for the recipe.
I love cranberries and freeze them in season to enjoy all year-round. Living near New Jersey’s cranberry bogs inspires me to develop new and delicious ways to use them, as in this recipe.—Christine Wendland, Browns Mills, New Jersey
