When planning to make ribs one day, I remembered that a friend had given me homemade plum jelly. I stirred some into the sauce for a pleasant fruity accent. —Ila Mae Alderman, Galax, Virginia

  • 4 to 4-1/2 pounds bone-in country-style pork ribs
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) chili sauce
  • 1 jar (12 to 13 ounces) plum preserves or preserves of your choice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


  1. Place ribs in two ungreased 13x9-in. baking dishes. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45 minutes; drain.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Set aside 3/4 cup sauce for serving.
  3. Brush ribs with some of the remaining sauce. Bake, uncovered, until ribs are tender, 30-45 minutes, turning and basting frequently with remaining sauce. Serve with reserved sauce.
