Wash and pat dry one slab of pork loin ribs, then rub both sides with mixture of 3 Tbsp brown sugar; 1/2 tsp each onion powder, garlic powder, cumin & nutmeg; 1 tsp each chili powder, salt, & black pepper.

Tightly cover roaster (or cover with foil and crimpr tightly), then roast ribs in 1/2 c. apple juice at gas mark 4 (180 C, 350 F) for 2 hours.

Meantime, prepare sauce . . . Combine the following in a pan and simmer: 1/3 c. ketchup; 2-3 Tbsp each honey (or brown sugar) & molasses (treacle), 1 Tbsp cider or white vinegar; 1/4 tsp each onion powder, chili powder & garlic powder; pinch each of allspice, pepper, & cinnamon; a few drops Tabasco (optional).

When ribs have finished in oven, remove from pan (discard liquid), slice apart, brush with sauce. Then either broil or grill for 15 minutes, turning halfway through, or bake at gas mark 7 (220 C, 425 F) for approximately 15 minutes.

Serve with extra sauce for dipping.
