Honey Tips

How Honey Is Created

Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.


Preheat oven to 325°.
Place ribs on foiled-covered rack of roasting pan. Bake for 1 ¼ hours. Remove from oven (can be made a day ahead).
Meanwhile, heat oil in a small pan. Sauté ginger, garlic and jalepeno for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Add pureed mango, ketchup, lime juice, honey and pepper sauce. Return to heat and simmer 5 minutes.
Prepare barbecue. Baste ribs with sauce and place on grill. Cook approximately 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Baste ribs again and grill for an additional 15 minutes, turning several times.
