Barbecued Ribs with Blueberry Sauce

Barbecued Ribs with Blueberry Sauce

4 cups water

3 to 4 pounds country style pork ribs

2 pints fresh blueberries

1 medium onion, thinly sliced

3 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons balsamic or red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger root

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

Bring water to a full boil in 6 quart saucepan; add ribs. Cook over medium high heat until ribs are fork tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white. Place all remaining ingredients in 2 quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until flavors are blended, about 12 to 15 minutes.

Place ribs on grill; baste with blueberry sauce. Grill, basting and turning occasionally, until ribs are fork tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Cook remaining blueberry sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Serve sauce over ribs.

TIP: Fresh blueberries are recommended. However, 1 16 ounce package frozen blueberries, thawed, drained can be substituted. Sauce will be thinner made with frozen blueberries.

6 servings.
