A recipe! I created a recipe! Finally...
I was hungry for a maple sauce for ribs and balsamic vinegar came to mind. So I mixed the two together and threw in some garlic powder. The result was tasty.

Maple Balsamic Ribs
1 large rack of Pork Spare Ribs
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
Mix together and rub on all sides of the the ribs.
Let set for 1-2 hours.
Place ribs in a large roasting pan and add 1 inch of water.
Cover and roast at 300 for 2 hours or until tender.
The ribs should pull apart easily with a fork.
If they do not they need to be roasted longer.
Some ribs are thicker than others.
Maple Balsamic Sauce
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Whisk together and set aside.
Remove ribs from the roaster and place on a cookie sheet.
Turn your oven on broil at 500 degrees.
Poke ribs with a fork and pour half the sauce over them.
Place in the oven and broil until sauce has darkened.
Pour remaining sauce over ribs and broil
again until sauce has caramelized.
Place on serving tray and pour left over sauce in
a small bowl for dipping.
