My sweet mom has been gone for 13 years now, but in honor of Mother's Day I am making a supper that was one of her favorites and also one of my favorites that she made ...... spare ribs, potatoes, and saurkraut. My husband is from Mississippi, where ribs are ONLY barbequed. They have their secret dry rubs for the slow process over the smoker and Mississippians may differ somewhat on whether the sauce should be sweet, smoky, tangy, or spicy, but they never disagree that ribs are only for Bar-B-Q-ing. My husband still doesn't care for my method, which probably is German in origin. But, he smoked a nice pork loin yesterday and I am fixing my mom's recipe on top of the stove for the kids and myself. We do agree on the sides, fresh greens from a dear friend's garden and cornbread. I am not sure if the ribs in heaven are "Suhthen" or German, but Happy Mother's Day Mom, I love and miss you every day.
