    Good morning, everybody…

    It’s “National Greasy Food Day,” today. Uh….No.

    Here’s a recipe I’ve been looking for an excuse to post. Make these once, and I guarantee you’ll make them again.

    Fingers are permitted, indeed they are encouraged!!

    RUM RIBS

    (From the Vancouver Sun Wednesday, April 5, 1989)

    The recipe appears as written. I’ve written some notes below. (Everybody I’ve given this recipe to makes it my way. They’ve also passed it on to at least one other person; it’s that good.)

    4 lbs. (2 kg.) spareribs
    1 cup ( 250 ml) brown sugar
    ½ cup (125 ml) chili sauce
    ¼ cup (50 ml) ketchup
    ½ cup (125 ml) dark rum
    ¼ cup (50 ml) soy sauce
    1 tablespoon (15 ml) Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon (5 ml) dry mustard
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    ⅛ teaspoon (1 ml) black pepper

    Cut ribs into individual pieces. Line a roasting pan with a double thickness of foil. Place ribs in pan and seal tightly in foil.

    Bake at 350° Fahrenheit (180° Celsius) for 45 minutes. Unwrap ribs (discard foil) and pour off drippings.

    Combine remaining ingredients; pour half the sauce over ribs. Return to oven and bake for about 1½ hours or until meat is tender, turning ribs occasionally and basting with remaining sauce. Makes five or six servings.

    Notes from me:

    A clove of garlic is one segment of a garlic bulb.

    TRICKS LEARNED FROM COOKING RUM RIBS

    1) Getting the fat off the ribs in the first baking is important. If you don’t think there’s enough melted off, bake them a little longer. It’s almost impossible to overcook this recipe.

    2) Use Heinz chili sauce, or else the ribs will be way too hot.

    3) Different rums will give different flavours but don’t use spiced rums or the ribs will be almost inedible.

    4)

    I don’t baste!

    Double the sauce or halve the ribs, and pour all the sauce into the roaster. There’s no need to turn them either. (The time remains the same.)



    Don’t drink the rest of the rum until after you have the ribs cut!! :-)



    On this day in 1955 the first domestic microwave went on sale. It was made by the Tappan Stove Company under license from Raytheon. The microwave was powered by 220 volts, and cost the equivalent of $10,500 dollars today. It had decent wattage though, 500 and 800 watts. The first commonly sold microwaves were 700 watts.

    Micro-waves themselves were a serendipitous development from the radar technology of WW II; in fact the first patent applied for was done by Raytheon in 1945. Raytheon’s first model weighed 750 pounds, and required water cooling.

    The first commercially sold micro-wave ( the Radarange 1161) was sold in Boston in 1954, and cost between $16,000 and $24,000 dollars in today’s cash depending on how one does the conversion.

    It’s popularity didn’t really begin until 1970 when 40,000 were sold. By 1975 that figure was 1,000,000.

    On an odd-ball note, Studebaker company, yes that one, had an interest in manufacturing through one of its subsidiaries.

    @Alexikakos

    Those ribs sound DELICIOUS! That looks like the best recipe I have seen yet.

    Interesting story on the microwave. And now you can get one for under $100 or even less. Amazing, isn’t it, how things change.

    If the pirate supplied the rum, we could have a great rib feet tonight. How about it?

    Silly spell check. That was supposed to be “rib-fest”, not “rib feet”.
