Ribs Served With Mashed Potatoes

By Patricia Freeman of Arlington, Mass.

Ingredients for Ribs:

2 lbs pork ribs
2 tbs molasses
1 c catsup
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs Dijon mustard
A little salt 1/4 tsp salt
1 tbs soy sauce
5 cloves of garlic
1 large onion sliced
1 jalapeno chopped

Ingredients for Mashed Potatoes:

4 potatoes
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tbs butter
1/4 cup milk

Directions for Ribs:

Simmer ribs in boiling water for 15 minutes to release some of the fat.

Put ribs in the Crock-Pot for 2 hours then add all the other ingredients.

Cook for 6 more hours on low heat or 4 hours on high heat.

Check after 4 hours to see how they are cooking. Length can vary.

If they look a little dry, add a little catsup mixed with a little water. They should fall off the bone. Delicious.

Directions for Mashed Potatoes:

Four potatoes boiled with two cloves garlic. Mash with 1/2 cup sour cream, 3 tbs butter, and 1/4 cup milk. Add more milk, if dry. Garnish with chives.
