Maple-Barbecued Ribs


3 pounds spareribs
1 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons chili sauce
2 tablespoons white distilled or cider vinegar
1 grind black pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup brandy (optional)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Cut the spareribs into serving-size pieces and place in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over the ribs, turning to coat all sides. Bake for 1-½ to 2 hours. Turn the pieces and brush with the sauce frequently while baking. The ribs are done when the meat is very tender. Serve hot.
