Maple-Ginger Glazed Ribs

Serves 2 as a meal, 4 as an appetizer

1 rack of pork ribs (about 2 1/2 pounds)

1 cup maple syrup

2 tablespoon cider vinegar

1 tablespoon diced ginger

1 tablespoon diced garlic

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Mix glaze ingredients together. Brush some of the mixture onto the ribs, and place them on a cooling rack on a foil-covered cookie sheet. Bake at 250 degrees for an hour and a half. Brush with the glaze two or three times during cooking.

Take the ribs out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes, then cut into individual ribs (or two-rib pieces). Brush on more glaze, then cook on a grill for about 15 minutes over low-medium heat, turning frequently, basting more as desired.
