Recipe Recommendation: Oven-Baked Spare Ribs

A low temperature and long cooking time turns out perfect spare ribs every time. For those who have never cooked ribs before, this recipe is an excellent place to start and virtually foolproof-- in fact, the longer you cook your ribs in these conditions, the more tender they become! The dry rub recipe is a great foundation but it's flexible-- don't have mustard seed? That's okay. Don't like white pepper? No problem. Customize the rub as you please, but definitely don't leave it out-- cooking the ribs with a generous coating of rub yields deeply flavorful results. You may find that you don't even need to break out the BBQ sauce! Hungry yet? Let Serious Eats guide you to hog heaven: Serious Eats Oven Barbecue Pork Ribs.

Once or twice a month I'll post recipes and when our CSA is active, we'll include seasonal recipes using our own produce, herbs, fruit, and edible flowers! I hope you'll find our blog entertaining and informative (and beautiful)! You are also welcome to share your recipes with me and I'll add them to our blog as space allows. Please be sure to include where you obtained the recipe, if it's not a family recipe. Simply email me at with "Recipe" in the subject line. And, I welcome comments and suggestions.
