California-style Baby Back Ribs with Acacia Honey

Makes 3 servings


1 whole rack baby back pork ribs
1/2 cup Savannah Bee Acacia honey
1 cup tamari soy sauce
4 garlic cloves, peeled but left whole
1 whole Meyer lemon

Combine the tamari, honey and whole garlic cloves in small saucepan. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Meanwhile, place rack(s) of ribs in a deep baking pan. Add 1 cup of water, or enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Cover with aluminum foil and steam on low heat (325°F) for 45 minutes.

Remove the water from the baking pan and pour on marinade. Bake, uncovered, basting frequently, for an additional 1/2 hour, or until thoroughly cooked.

Finish over charcoal, if possible, or broil to bring a crisp finish to the ribs. Squeeze with Meyer Lemon just before serving.

Cool, cut, enjoy!
