Honey Tips

Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


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.
