2 To 3 pounds pork spareribs
1 1/2 Cup(s) Hot water
1 Potatoes, pared and halved
1 1/2 Cup(s) Canned or cooked green beans with liquid

Brown spare ribs in frying pan without added fat. Add water and simmer for 1 hour. Add potatoes to meat and cook until tender - about 25 minutes. Add beans and liquid the last 10 minutes of cooking. If raw beans are used, add with the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Skim off excess fat before serving. To complete the meal: Serve with crisp lettuce, tomato and celery salad, and apple betty with lemon sauce for dessert. For variety: Beef short ribs may be used with longer cooking. Corned beef, ham hock, or ham bone may be used in place of short ribs. Cover with water and simmer about 3 hours or until tender. Omit salt, and continue as above. Good with sauerkraut.

5. Apricot and Pecan-Stuffed Pork Loin


From Stop and Smell the Rosemary... Recipes and Traditions to Remember.

1-1/2 cups dried apricots
1/2 cup pecans
1 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons plus 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon plus 3 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons plus 2 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
1 boneless pork loin roast (5 pounds), halved
1 cup bourbon
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup of salt

To Prepare

Coarsely chop apricots, pecans, garlic, salt, and pepper in a food processor. Add 2 tablespoons thyme, 1 tablespoon molasses, and 2 tablespoons oil. Process until mixture is finely chopped, but not smooth.

Make a lengthwise cut down the center of each roast, cutting to, but not through, the bottom. Starting from center slice, slice horizontally toward one side, stopping 1/2 inch from edge. Repeat with other loin half. Flatten each half to a 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin.

Spread apricot mixture evenly over pork. Roll each loin half, jelly-roll fashion, starting with long side. Secure with string. Place both rolls, seam side down, in a shallow roasting pan. Brush with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and sprinkle with remaining thyme. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Bring bourbon, broth, and remaining 3 tablespoons molasses to a boil in a large saucepan. Remove from heat. Carefully ignite bourbon mixture with a long match. When flames die, pour over roasts.

Bake at 350 degrees 1 to 1-1/2 hours, or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion registers 160 degrees. Remove pork from pan, reserve drippings, and keep warm.

Pour reserved drippings in a small saucepan. Add cream and salt. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened. Slice pork and serve with sauce.
