This is the recipe my Mom concocted years ago for barbecued ribs. This is the only recipe we ever used! It is different in that you add preserves to the sauce to give it a sweet taste. Watch out! It can become habit forming! The amount of preserves used would be determined by the amount of sauce made. For the recipe listed I would use enough preserves to make the sauce thick, probably about 1/2 to 3/4 of a small jar. You can use apricot or peach, whichever you have on hand or prefer. One tip for grilling: The sugar in the preserves tends to burn on the grill quickly. To avoid a real clean-up mess, use the sauce at the end of the grilling. When using this recipe for Pulled Pork, omit preserves -- This will give you the perfect sauce for Pulled Pork!
