Here's a different recipe for baby back ribs.

I grow blackberries in my back yard. I was looking for new recipes to use them and this was one of the successful recipes I put together. I hope you try it and like it as much as we do. Keep cooking.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Yum! These are really good ribs. We baked them in the oven and they came out delicious. I bet they'd be even better on the grill. The blackberry honey sauce is a great compliment to the baby back ribs. It's sweet, just a little tangy and forms a slight crust under the broiler. Even the pickiest of rib eaters will go crazy for these!

Ingredients

2
racks baby back ribs (about 4 lbs)
salt & pepper
liquid smoke
1-1/2 c
blackberries
2 clove
garlic, peeled
1/4 c
ketchup
1-1/2 Tbsp
honey
1 tsp
balsamic vinegar
1 tsp
hot sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400°.
2
Rub ribs with a few drops of liquid smoke and season with salt and pepper. Put meaty side up on a foil-lined baking sheet; bake for about 45 minutes.
3
Put blackberries, garlic, ketchup, honey, vinegar, hot sauce, and 1/2 tsp salt into a blender and puree for about 30 seconds. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve.
4
Change oven to broil. Brush ribs with sauce and broil until thick glaze forms, about 5 minutes. Cut between bones into individual ribs.
5
To cook on a charcoal grill: omit the liquid smoke; cook until ribs are just done; then brush ribs with sauce and cook until glaze forms.
