Introduction

On request. The sweet and sticky spareribs. Totally inspired on Nigella's ham in Coke. The boiling makes them really tender and make them fall of the bone, so to speak.

    What 2 Others have said

    • I waited an age after boiling the ribs for half an hour. The recipe says remove the ribs and reduce the juice in the pan to a syrup. Trust me it does not reduce, also there's a disgusting scum that accumulates when boiling the ribs. In the end I decided to boil fresh cola to reduce it does take ages though.
