Spareribs Sweet and Tender (Crock Pot)

READY IN: 6hrs 20mins
Recipe by Rita1652

I made this with my Zucchini, Pineapple, Ginger Jam #95600. BUT you can use store bought pineapple jam. These are so tender and tasty. My son couldn't wait for them to brown under the broiler so he ate them right out of the crock pot!

We really liked this with a couple of alterations....left off the chiles, personal preference, and only had about 2+ pounds of country ribs that I had to trim considerably. Instead of heating the broiler I popped them on the grill for a couple of minutes per side and basted with the sauce. Best thing was the crokpot part and that they are all gone!! Thanx Rita!!
