Stopwatch icon Prep & Cook Time: 10 minutes preparation / 2.5 hours cook time


  • 2 litres local apple cider
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups water or chicken stock
  • 1 cup local maple syrup (divided)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon of your favourite seasonings
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 1 side Stemmler’s Pork Back Ribs
  • 1 cup rib cooking liquid
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

How to Prepare

Preheat oven to 300F.


Combine the first nine recipe items in a large sauce pot and bring to a boil (set aside ¼ cup of maple syrup). Once boiling, turn off, pour into a deep baking dish then add ribs. Cover and bake in oven for one and half hours at 300F. 


Once braised, remove ribs from the liquid, place in another baking dish and pour a ladleful of the braising liquid over the ribs to keep moist. Set aside. 


Preheat oven to 425F or start your bbq. 


Strain the liquid for the glaze in a small sauce pot. Bring to a simmer, add the Worcestershire, mustard and the rest of the maple syrup then cook down until it's reduced by half and thickened (twenty minutes). 


Brush both sides of the ribs with the glaze, place ribs meat side down in the baking dish and transfer to the oven or the bbq. 


Cook for 10 more minutes on each side. Brush with any extra glaze before serving. Serve with your favorite local and seasonal side dishes, such as asparagus and roasted potatoes.
