  • Sticky Spicy Spare Ribs

    Hi, I just watched an episode of one of Nigella's shows where she made some chili and honey ribs that needed 1 hour and 30 minutes in the oven. I can´t find the recipe? Also on the show was Slut Red Rasberries In Chardonnay Jelly. Can you help me to find the recipe? Thanks, Julie

    From the nigella team:

    We suspect that the recipe you are describing is the Spare Ribs recipe from Nigella's book Forever Summer. The ribs are marinated in a mixture of Asian spices and then cooked slowly until they are tender and sticky. They are then served with a sprinkling of chopped fresh red and green chillis.

    Unfortunately the recipe is not currently available on-line, however it can be found on page 106 of the Forever Summer Book. You may also like to try Nigella's Bourbon Glazed Ribs from Christmas or you could try the Maple Chicken 'N' Ribs from Nigella Express and substitute and extra 12 spare ribs for the chicken thighs. Both of these dishes could be served with the chopped chillis at the end, or thinly sliced spring onions (scallions).
