How To Make blackberry bbq ribs

    Preheat oven to 350 degree F. If grilling, disregard this. Preheat grill. Medium heat. I baked mine and finished on the grill.

    In a food processor or blender, place blackberry jam, ketchup, brown sugar, ginger, hot sauce, and pepper; pulse until pureed. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the prepared blackberry mixture and bring to a boil; boil 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and set aside.

    In a large baking pan I baked for 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. When finished, I grilled 5 minutes per side basting one more time each side. I doubled the sauce also. As I made more than one slab of ribs. I store remaining sauce in a jar in the refrigerator. Sometimes I do the whole cooking process on the grill. Depends how hot the weather is. Either way they are delicious! I have also used this sauce for pork in the crock pot. Also, it is good on chicken...
