Bring water to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer 45 minutes to 1 hour or until ribs are tender (meanwhile you can make the sauce).
Remove ribs from pot and place in a shallow glass baking dish.
While the ribs are simmering, whisk all the ingredients for the sauce in a medium sized pan over low heat.
Simmer for 20-30 minutes, occasionally whisking the sauce.
Brush sauce on one side of the ribs.
Place in oven and cook for 45 minutes at 350 ° F
Turn ribs over and baste with more sauce.
Continue cooking for another 45 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
I will use my homemade chunky applesauce for this recipe.If barbecuing, place ribs on greased grill on medium heat. Baste with sauce. Continue turning and basting for about 15 minutes or until meat is nicely grilled and sauce is caramelized.Please keep in mind that the nutritional information provided below is just a rough estimate and variations can occur depending on the specific ingredients used. *adapted from recipe found in The Montreal Gazette
