Slow Cook Spareribs, Sauerkraut & Hot Apple Salsa

“After receiving a jar of Beak and Skiff Hot Apple Salsa as a gift, I decided to use it to make this great twist on a traditional slow-cooked pork and sauerkraut dish. The hot apple salsa is a regional salsa from one of the many apple orchards surrounding this area. Boneless spareribs cook slowly in a savory mixture of sauerkraut, onion, potatoes, and Beak and Skiff Hot Apple Salsa. The ribs and vegetables come out juicy, tender, and flavorful with a pleasing hint of heat. Beak and Skiff Orchard sells their products online so that anyone can duplicate this recipe.”
