  • 2 bottles (18 ounces each) hickory smoke-flavored barbecue sauce
  • 1 can (15 ounces) sliced peaches, drained and halved crosswise
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cup jalapeno pepper jelly
  • 1/2 cup pickled hot jalapeno slices
  • 6 pounds pork baby back ribs, well-trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Thinly sliced green onions


  1. In a large bowl, mix the first 5 ingredients. Cut ribs into 3-rib portions; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place half the ribs in a 6-qt. slow cooker; pour half the sauce mixture over ribs. Repeat layers. Cook, covered, on low 6-8 hours or until meat is tender.
  2. Remove ribs from slow cooker; keep warm. Strain cooking juices, reserving peaches and vegetables. Skim fat from cooking juices; thicken if desired. Stir in reserved peaches and vegetables; serve with ribs. Sprinkle with green onions.
