The flavors of maple syrup and pork are especially compatible. The best spareribs I have eaten were served by a woman who raises her own pork and collects her own maple syrup. THe following recipe is in the spirit of the ribs my friend served one late-winter afternoon.
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.
