Spare Rib Recipe

This recipe came from a good friend of the family my Auntie Janet – it is my mom’s recipe for spare ribs which I don’t even think I have so what a treasure!

I remember eating these as a kid and they really are amazing – they were a once in a while treat for us that my family still remembers fondly.

I hope you guys like it too (and remember moderation is the key as this one isn’t what I would call my normal healthy recipe post but there is something to be said for the foods of our childhood)
