Outdoor Eating: Wine 'N' Honey Ribs


For many years beginning in 1957 Woman's Day Magazine had a little monthly recipe insert titled The Collector's Cook Book. Each month was devoted to a different food item, method of cooking etc. They often had whimsical illustrations. The edges were perforated for easy removal and had hole punch markings.

Several times these were compiled and released as cookbooks. I have a paperback edition and a deluxe ring binder, slip case version from 1970.

I've saved a large number of the magazine editions. This one is from July 1972. The topic was outdoor eating and contains this different take on barbecued ribs:
Wine 'N' Honey Ribs
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 cup red wine
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup red-wine vinegar
1 teaspoon onion salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
4 pounds beef short ribs
Combine all ingredients, except ribs, and mix well. Lay ribs in shallow glass dish and pour sauce over top. Refrigerate overnight. Remove from refrigerator and cook on grill, brushing frequently with sauce. 1-1/2 to 2 hours, or until very tender. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

I remember these books, and my mom had several. The barbeque sauce sounds like a classic.
